There's an odd mournful quality to narrator Ava Erickson's narration of Erin Spencer's semi-autobiographical story with romantic elements. Listeners may find the lingering sadness in Erickson's tentative, soft voice confusing because casino dealer Summer seems content with her life. But Erickson's tone soon makes sense as tragedy strikes Summer's whirlwind romance with Louisiana artist Ben. Erickson shares the dual narration with Zachary Webber, who portrays Ben as immediately smitten by Summer, even if his wealthy family disapproves. Webber's deeper pitch is in pleasing contrast to Erickson's lighter, airy timbre. Together the narrators successfully create a special world in which Summer and Ben spin dreams and become a united couple. While the narration starts off diffuse, it becomes more cohesive over time, matching the story's emotional arc. C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2023]
