Narrator Judith Ivey's Minnesota accent gives authenticity to this delightful audiobook about two estranged sisters. Strong-willed Helen was so determined to own a brewery that she convinced her father to make her his sole heir. As Helen's beer becomes a regional favorite, Edith struggles to raise her children, take care of her ailing husband, and raise her orphaned granddaughter, never once spending her hard-earned money on her sister's lager. Ivey's performance beautifully underscores the women's unique personalities as each finds her way through grief and betrayals, ambition and hope. Ivey wisely puts the charm of this story in the spotlight, delivering a tone of Midwestern pragmatism as the women bake pies, brew beer, nurture unlikely friendships, and find redemption.
