Narrator Bahni Turpin assuredly delivers this nonlinear story of two families whose lives intertwine in the foothills of the North Carolina Piedmont. Across the decades, listeners meet fierce Jade and her sensitive son, Gee, as well as overmatched Lacey May and her three daughters, one of whom is Noelle. Gee and Noelle are drawn together through a school integration plan in the early 2000s without knowing that their lives have briefly touched before in the person of their fathers--Gee's murdered and Noelle's imprisoned. As the novel sprawls outward from this connection, Turpin holds the complex storylines and relationships together with her impeccable tones and narrative timing. She invests each character with just the right voice and accent to reflect their personal history and geography. N.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2021]
