Narrator Jessica Almasy's slow Southern drawl slips the listener right into the ambiance of the bayou. When single mother Seraphina inherits a home in disrepair, handyman Harrison offers his help. Celeste, a wealthy matriarch who is Harrison's aunt, blames Seraphina for her son's death. Listeners hear Celeste's haughty tone in Almasy's delivery, which is the perfect contrast for the sweet tone she uses for Seraphina. As Celeste and Seraphina are thrust together, each comes to understand the other, and Almasy transforms her voice to soften Celeste's demeanor. Seraphina's family provides comic relief, and Almasy's timing makes the most of it. Listeners will be taken on an emotional journey full of humor, tears, and passion.
