As Robert Fass narrates this wintry audiobook, he invigorates the characters through intelligent pacing and a fine storyteller's tone and empathy. The novel reveals a family's memories and long-held secrets through accounts of their participation in soaring ski-jumping competitions. One family member, a writer who is given a diagnosis of early-onset dementia, unearths dark truths as he looks back. The most impressive passages capture the exquisite sport of flying over snow, which are lyrically described by the author, who is a ski jumper himself. As the competitions bring the family together and elevate the story, Fass creates an immersive listening experience. A.D.M.
