Liz Higgs portrays Dynah Carey's struggle with rape and her difficult decision to abort the resulting pregnancy, a decision that profoundly affects her relationship with her family. With her versatile vocal range, Higgs depicts Dynah's feelings of victimization, which challenge her rock-solid faith. She depicts Dynah's sense of betrayal--first, by her fianc?, and then by her college dean, who tells her to leave to protect her fiancé's reputation. Detailed characterization gives the sense of multiple narrators. Higgs's portrayal of Dynah's rising anxiety as she waits for God to provide answers is especially believable. Higg's empathy and sensitivity animate the entire reading. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
