by | Read by Annabel Baldwin, Robyn Holdaway

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This haunting novel is beautifully written and artfully narrated by Annabel Baldwin and Robyn Holdaway. Leah, a marine biologist, returns from a submarine research mission that trapped her at the bottom of the ocean for six months. When she returns, her wife, Miri, is frustrated by inexplicable changes in Leah. In alternating chapters, Holdaway captures Leah's pre-mission excitement and her post-mission distraction, especially her seeming otherworldliness. In brooding, thoughtful tones, Baldwin precisely reflects Miri's heartache, isolation, and distress. She captures Miri's anguish and shock as Leah undergoes mysterious, horrific transformations. Thanks to fine performances, Leah's diary entries, Miri's flashbacks, and the unimaginable mystery of the deep ocean all seem real. Listeners won't want to miss this genre-bending love story. S.J.H.
