Baldacci is known for his thrillers, but after WISH YOU WELL the real mystery is why he doesn’t write more stories like it. He shows strong insight into the minds of children by telling the story of 12-year-old Lou and her 7-year-old brother, Oz, who are learning to live with their great-grandmother in Virginia after the death of their father. Norma Lana brings so much vigor to the story the listener will be tempted to stand up and cheer, or reach for a tissue. This is one of those performances that make us late for work. Lana speaks in the mountain tongue so well that there’s no question of its authenticity. There’s a lot of Baldacci in the story—he comes from the same mountains— and it shows in the sheer joy of the writing. M.S.
