Caroline Slaughter narrates this slow-moving historical mystery in a gentle voice. The story is set in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1926, when Two Feathers, a young Cherokee horse-diver on loan to Glendale Park Zoo from a Wild West show, and her high-diving horse, Ocher, are injured when they fall into a cave below the diving pool. Slaughter takes her time with this rambling novel, which provides detailed backstory on each character--from the Native American Two Feathers and British-accented Clive to the lightly accented southern Tennesseans who own the land where the zoo performs. While Slaughter lazily pronounces polysyllabic words, distracting the attentive listener from the meandering story, she ably varies her tone and accents as suits the diversity of the characters.
