Dr. David Winkler is studying the intricately connected natural patterns of water and snowflakes. He dreams that his infant daughter will die in a flood as he tries to save her. Terrified and guilty, he runs away to prevent this happening. For 25 years he wanders like Odysseus over seas and across continents. Returning at last, he finds that the end of his odyssey has been guided both by the gods and a kind of grace. Henry Strozier's reading lends energy and strength to Doerr's subtle depictions and poetic text. His voice struts manfully through Winkler's painful hesitations; it is bold yet tentative, sensitive both to the rich poetry and scientific preciseness of Doerr's text.
