In Jerusalem, years ago--many, many years ago--a desperate mother with a sick child made a promise. How could she have known that the promise would last an eternity? In a story spanning centuries, narrator Elisabeth Rodgers captures the resolute voice of Rachel, a woman who has quite literally seen it all. Rodgers's performance strikes a perfect balance between the weariness and assurance that cloak Rachel as she reflects on her numerous husbands and children who have lived and died, leaving her more alone each time. Rodgers's delivery is measured, and she makes excellent use of low tones for Rachel's sardonic and exasperated moments. In addition to the drama of her macabre reality, Rachel has a lot of charm and wisdom to offer listeners. A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
