Katharine McEwan and Philip Battley do an excellent job alternating voices in this lovely novel. Ellie, portrayed by McEwan, is married to an overbearing man. While mourning the loss of her father, she wanders into a barn on a walk and meets Dan, a harpmaker. Dan, portrayed by Battley, is a bit different from anyone Ellie has ever met before. Battley does a fantastic job bringing these differences to light with a stilted delivery and matter-of-fact tone. Both narrators’ accents, as well as the evocative descriptive details, bring listeners into the setting of Exmoor, England. As the story comes to completion, there are tense moments, which the narrators pace well. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
