Polish actress Beata Pozniak does not merely narrate this ethereal new novel, she inhabits it, seamlessly becoming Janina, the main character and teller of the tale. The retired teacher, avid astrologer, and neighborhood eccentric lives in a sparsely populated village in the woods. She prefers the company of animals to people, giving her neighbors unflattering nicknames like "Bigfoot" and "Oddball." When Oddball and another neighbor turn up dead, Janina embarks on a quixotic mission to help authorities solve the murders and to urge them to outlaw the hunting of her beloved animals. Listeners will be transported by the perfect marriage of a rich, haunting, and, at times, humorous story and a very special narrator. D.G.P.
