Narrator Saskia Maarleveld keeps listener absorbed in this romance story, set in London and the Scottish Highlands. Jo Pennington is shocked to see her former fiancé, Wynne, while searching for information about her parentage. Old feelings reemerge as Wynne tries to win back Jo’s heart. She wants his help in finding answers, but will she be able to trust him with her future? Maarleveld’s precise transitions and attention to detail perceptively expose the characters’ thoughts and motivations. As a result, Jo and Wynne’s simmering connection is utterly appealing. Supporting characters are treated with equal vigor and precision. For example, Wynne’s young son, Cuffe, is tenderly voiced as he bonds with Wynne. Listeners will want to meet all the Penningtons after hearing Maarleveld’s interpretation. S.H.
