When Betty Sweet's life implodes in LaFontaine, Michigan, in the 1960s, she finds a new purpose as she works through her grief. Narrator Tavia Gilbert brings Betty's voice alive in a story that shines a light on the power of family to help us navigate life's storms and the power of stories to bring us together. Gilbert's voice quavers with love and grief as Betty copes with the death of her beloved husband, Norm. She inserts a childlike lilt as she recounts the childhoods of Betty and her sister, Clare. Young Hugo, the mixed-race 6-year-old nephew Betty has just met, has a voice that starts out shy and unsure but gains strength and confidence as he finds stability in Betty's care.
