Children Ages 8+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Brenna Larsen tenderly narrates this story about love, loss, and the enduring power of art. Bex and her tight-lipped brother, Davey, are content to spend time mostly with each other, exploring the marshes of their island home. When a drought uncovers a previously submerged statue, they fixate on solving the mystery of its origin in order to stop a development project from destroying the marsh. Larsen imbues Bex's voice with sweet sincerity as she navigates the frightening prospect of ongoing change in her life. As the mystery deepens, the sharp-eared listener will notice that Davey's infrequently heard voice becomes more and more like Bex's own. Larsen also gives each of the supporting characters a distinct tone that rounds out this quietly moving audio. N.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
