Emily Woo Zeller expertly narrates Sarah Perry's memoir, a thoughtful retrospective and a gripping true-crime. In tender and terrible detail, Perry recounts the events before and after her mother's brutal murder. She looks forward to an upcoming annular eclipse, though she warns,"Historically, eclipses are not good signs. After the eclipse comes chaos and disorder, raping and pillaging." Perry's mother, Crystal, "She cast light," is murdered two days after that eclipse. The story crisscrosses through time as Perry struggles to understand the event and its aftermath. Zeller builds real people with credible emotions, illustrating a loving mother-daughter relationship and Perry's devastation at its loss. What could be better than a listening experience combining masterful writing, a riveting story, and a superb narration? S.J.H.
