Emily Rankin narrates a novel about the meaning of home and family. Esme Cahill returns to her childhood home after failing spectacularly at her adult life. Trying to save her family's business from financial ruin offers a temporary respite, but what if she fails at that, too? Rankin's narration strikes the right tones of warmth and humor. Esme has faced hardships in her life but has a generally positive outlook, and Rankin emphasizes her cheerfulness. Secondary characters give Rankin the opportunity to expand her narration. George, Esme's grandfather, who is struggling with the onset of dementia, and Robyn, Esme's estranged mother, are standouts. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
