Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

With a quirky protagonist, a wide range of unconventional characters, and a storyline spanning more than 40 years, this is an engaging listen. Author/narrator Winman pulls listeners in with her beautiful prose and vivid descriptions. At the start, Elly is a girl in England in the late 1960s. She questions everything--even when she gets in trouble--and Winman captures her precociousness and innocence. Elly is surrounded by her eccentric family and friends. Her older brother, Joe, gives her a rabbit they name God. Over the course of the story, the siblings experience trauma, transition, and tragedy as their journeys take them from England to New York City and back. Thoughtful, unexpectedly funny, and ultimately compelling. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
