Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

When journalist Ellen Gleason finds a striking resemblance between a missing child on a postcard and the son she adopted two years before, her need to know the truth risks destroying every aspect of the life she loves. Short chapters add a mild sense of urgency to the pace of this fairly predictable story, which plods along until the final two-and-a-half hours, when it suddenly races toward an implausibly happy ending. Actress Mary Stuart Masterson’s warm, precise voice enlists the listener’s sympathy for Ellen, even in her most boneheaded, self-sabotaging moments, and also provides convincing accents for the secondary characters. The production includes a ten-minute interview with the author. A.B.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
