Narrator Katy Sobey inhabits Liv Green, a house cleaner who dreams of becoming a writer. Sobey gives unique British voices to the characters in this novel. Essie Starling, a reclusive author who is one of Liv's clients, has a demanding tone, even as she encourages Liv's dream to write. When Essie dies, Liv is forced to keep it a secret, straining her marriage. But her compliant housekeeper's voice begins to gather confidence as she assumes the role of personal assistant and rushes to complete Essie's last manuscript while maneuvering to keep her death a secret from the public. Chloe, a journalist who is looking to uncover Essie's secrets, sounds cloying as she seeks to identify the reasons behind Essie's reclusive life. Minor characters are also given unique vocal personalities. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
