Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Shari Peele's voice is as smooth as honey as she narrates the story of Kayana Johnson, who is working as a cook in her brother's café on a small island off the coast of North Carolina. Kayana develops a friendship with two visitors, Leah and Cherie, over a love of books, and they form a book club. Graeme has moved to the island and finds himself attracted to Kayana. He is from Boston, and Peele gives him a subtle accent reflecting his hometown. Leah is older than Cherie, but the listener doesn't really get much distinction in their voices from Peele. Peele's low, smooth delivery will have listeners feeling like they, too, are on vacation on Coates Island, enjoying delicious Southern food.
