Jennifer Jill Araya brings the two sisters in Hoffman's short story to life. She projects the hurtful emotional baggage they've been carrying throughout 12 years of estrangement. When Isabel receives a mysterious letter containing the single word "HELP," she assumes it's from Sophie and heads to Brinkley's Island, Maine. Isabel's voice reflects her curiosity, defensiveness, and closed-off heart. Her niece, Violet, the actual letter sender, meets her aunt for the first time with anger and sarcasm in her heart. Sophie has broken her leg and is incapacitated for the next six weeks, and Violet thinks it's high time for Isabel come to Sophie's aid. Sophie's voice is guarded and accusatory. Will the sisters find their way back to the love they once shared? N.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
