Ellie Morgan is an aspiring journalist in San Francisco in 1945. After the war, she persuades her Aunt Ida to travel with her to New York City in search of answers about her father, whose life was lost in his fighter plane. In alternating chapters, Tavia Gilbert and Hillary Huber narrate Ellie's and Ida's accounts. Gilbert portrays a young woman who is shocked by the discovery of her father's secret affair but who maintains a deep love for him. Displaying wisdom and grace, Hubert recounts the story of Ida's remarkable early life as a Ziegfeld dancer in the glamorous 1920s and the dangerous predicament she barely escaped. The two voices are well paired, providing the contrast of generations and the shared determination of confident women. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
