Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The four narrators of this story speak in the voices of two parents and their two children, all of whom, through their own faulty memories, are reflecting on the vacation that changed their lives forever. Filled with OCD, adultery, cancer, medical quacks, and characters who are unable to speak honestly, this story is made palatable by the distinct voices and personalities the narrators bring to the table. Kate Lock, as Daisy, speaks in the voice of someone who has obsessive-compulsive disorder, speeding up as she enumerates her compulsions and revisits memories of that vacation. David Thorpe, as David, is the detached son who is tired of being the dependable one. Sarah Ovens, the wife scorned by both her husband and her best friend, has a distant tone. Huw Parameter, as ex-husband Nick, speaks more as an observer than a catalyst. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
