Stina Nielson fully animates the four Callahan Cousins in this second book of the series. The 12-year-old girls spend the summer with their beloved grandmother on Gull Island, Maine, learning lessons in patience, kindness, and forgiveness while enjoying an idyllic vacation. Stina Nelson brings these characters alive with her renditions of their attitudes and regional accents. Irish cousin Neeve is particularly vibrant, especially when expressing her shock and turmoil at discovering a family secret. As the cousins tackle a big redecorating project, Nelson carefully allows the tension and competition between them to build as the project deadline looms. Nielson creates a distinctive tone and personality for each of the cousins. W.V.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
