This arresting story, with its powerful opening, is beautifully read by a talented cast, sensitively led by Janet Wright as the heroine. At the end of her long life, Hagar Shipley looks back at the choices she made in her battle for personal independence. The cast's fine interpretation of each character pulls the listener into a Canadian family saga both intriguing and disturbing. The sightless stone angel, which overlooks the Canadian town and graces the production's CD jacket, serves as an apt metaphor for a melancholy story. Listeners may question some of Hagar's decisions and the prices she pays for them but will savor this poignant listening experience.
