by | Read by Nina Richmond

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook is a typical example of literary women's fiction. The strong, controlled voice of Nina Richmond immerses listeners in the emotionally precarious existence of Kate, a young widow who lives alone on an island off the coast of British Columbia. The novel also describes Kate's overbearing mother, Nora, and Ivy, an elderly woman who shares her romantic memories of living in Cuba in her youth. The story shifts backward and forward in time, and the point of view moves from one woman to another. Richmond is not overly dramatic in her portrayals, but she does enable listeners to empathize with the three women as they become better versions of themselves.
