Brittany Pressley's sweet voice, with its hint of vocal fry, is the ideal vehicle for this transporting novel of hardship, love, and redemption. Listeners meet teenage Cindra Zoeller in the 1990s, when she is sent to a Montana reform camp. Soon, she and the camp's young handyman, Lucky Turtle, have fallen in love. They begin an unforgettable lifelong odyssey by escaping into the Montana wilderness. For more than that, you must listen. Pressley captures Cindra's mix of skepticism and naïveté, and shapes a considered tone for Lucky, reflecting his thoughtful personality. Native Crow characters are honored with realistic speech patterns. Action sequences are staccato. And the novel's bounteous lyricism, and its love for landscape and people, are delivered with heart-brimming appreciation. A.C.S.
