In 1947 postwar New York, when the Dodgers are still in Brooklyn, Evie Spooner appears to have an idyllic life. That all changes when her family takes an extended trip to Palm Beach, where a boating accident ends in a tragic death. Caitlin Greer paces the story perfectly, drawing out each scene, pulling each character into the drama. Each story line is given equal emphasis, so the listener doesn't see how all the pieces fit together until the end. When Evie's mother and stepfather are suspected of murder, Evie takes it upon herself to sort out the conflicting stories and lies to reach her own truth. An interview with the author gives insights into how Blundell came to write this story. E.N. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
