Robin Pilcher is a solid storyteller with a good ear for dialogue. Throw in some telling detail, and you have a pleasant listening experience. The story focuses on Dan Porter, a securities trader laid off in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He is becoming estranged from his wife and family. After reading an article about a potential business venture, he travels to Scotland and secures a temporary position managing a prawn processing plant. The owner suffers from multiple sclerosis, and Dan becomes involved in his family. Through that, he learns how to relate to his own family. The character change in Dan is not clearly drawn, but this is Pilcher, not Conrad. And the audio abridgment has a few jumps that leave the listener wondering how the characters moved from Point A to Point B. But overall, this is enjoyable. R.C.G.
