Orlagh Cassidy narrates Blake's beautifully written multigenerational story of love and lies with consummate skill. Elegant and clear, distant yet passionate, she helps listeners discover the quirks in characters' personalities and explore their motives, both evident and hidden. The story, which spans the 1930s to the present, revolves around the Milton family of New York and Maine. In the beginning, they're insulated, rich, refined, vaguely Protestant, and casually prejudiced against those who are different. When the family is hit by tragedy, sublimation and silence save it. When WWII's turmoil offers them a chance for change and redemption, one person says no, and the reverberations ripple through the generations of a family that's no longer so rich or evenly vaguely Protestant.
