by | Read by Susanna Burney

Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

The multiple perspectives involved in this modern-day witch's tale are ably tackled by Susanna Burney. She takes on the various voices of a precocious teenager, a depressed middle-aged mother, and an ambitious manipulator of indiscernible age. Each of these characters has her own accompanying cast of supporting characters. Although it may take listeners a while to get used to the shifting narrative perspective, the alternating chapters build to a palpable tension. Burney's voice modulates the distinct personalities in a versatile and engaging style. She is also adept at the French phrases interspersed throughout the story. The lives and passions of these three women are presented in a fascinating manner. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
