Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Christa Lewis soberly narrates a detailed story on racial struggles in the early '90s. Leslie Marshall returns to Avalon Island with her multiracial family, which stirs up trouble from more conservative locals. Local girl Maddie falls in love with one of the Marshall's sons, and this causes further tension as she tries to hide her budding relationship from her racist father. Although Lewis's narration can be unvaried in tone and choppy in pacing, she should be commended for tackling such a meaty performance involving several serious themes including the social divide, environmental issues, and progressivism. This audiobook is intriguing for those interested in darker fiction. G.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2017]
