Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Fans of Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon series will find this stand-alone audiobook a totally different listening experience. Narrator Kate Burton portrays Rose, a woman in her 60s who has escaped an institution's Memory Unit. Rose is convinced that she has been falsely committed for dementia. Burton dramatically portrays Rose's metamorphosis as the drugs that have fogged her brain leave her system. Listeners learn more about her from her granddaughter, portrayed by Burton in a slight Southern accent, and Rose's reclusive sister, Marion. Burton does a good job of voicing and differentiating the many characters. Barr's facility with words shines through, though the plot is depressingly real in portraying the situation of the institutionalized elderly yet incredible when it comes to Rose's adventures.
