Science Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

Alison Elliott narrates as Nell, who lives with her sister and parents in seclusion in northern California. When civilization begins to break down, it is at first a far-off event; but soon, there's no more electricity, little food, and both her parents die. Nell and her sister, Eva, must survive with only each other. Hegland writes with clarity of events and emotions, and Elliott's reading is always powerful yet understated. A world the listener can hardly imagine becomes vivid through the author's prose and Elliott's ability to portray the emotions of both sisters. She creates a powerful, memorable visit to a very different reality. M.A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
