Tom Bailey tells the story of the Gary and Susan Hazen, high school sweethearts who live off the land and raise their kids in a remote part of the Adirondacks. Bailey's story extends beyond the Hazens and their two boys, capturing both the point of view and personalities of the locals in a small town. As events spiral out of control for the Hazen family, select members of the community report on the story. Bailey reads stiffly, providing a distinct voice for some characters, but his pace is thrown at times by his alterations of tone and inflection. While still entertaining, Bailey's delivery shortchanges the array of likable and believable characters. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
