In a smart-alecky tone mixed with genuine heart, narrator Aimee Horne nails the character of Abigail Sorenson. Abigail is a single mother in her mid-30s running a café in Sydney after leaving her law practice. She is a satirical and sharp observer of the absurd with a witty turn of phrase, but she also holds her losses close--a cheating husband and the unsolved disappearance of her brother when they were both teenagers. This audiobook mix of the quirky and the tragic holds together partly due to the terrific talents of Horne. Her Australian accent is charming, her snappy delivery perfect and often hilarious, her emotional depth and empathy completely authentic, and her timing terrific--her pace noticeably quickens as Abigail's son faces a medical emergency.
