No character's accent or eccentricity is beyond the skills of author/narrator Allyson Rice in this raucous yet poignant road trip story. Listeners meet dancer/bartender Jesse and suburban mom Jennifer after they learn their mother, Angie, has left them a fortune in the Deep South--with one caveat: They must undertake a scavenger hunt to claim it. En route, they meet their previously unknown brother, Jack, and learn the heartbreaking reasons Angie, a teen mom at the time, left them. To learn about Angie's past, the exceptionally rendered siblings meet the quirky but compassionate people who helped her and now recount her story. Rice shines when they visit a circus, where they meet Angie's fellow performers, and a juke joint featuring Angie's friends, music, and even religion. S.G.B.
