Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

A superb ensemble cast keeps the characters clearly delineated in this harrowing story of abuse, alcoholism, and murder-suicide in an idyllic New Hampshire village. Soon the mourners begin to look like suspects as forensics point up discrepancies in people’s stories. Mark Bramhall is perfect as the overwhelmed pastor—stodgy, serious, and riddled with guilt by his lack of faith. Susan Denaker is utterly believable as author Heather, a woman whose tragic life causes her to rely on angels. Rebecca Lowman shines as the daughter left behind to pick up the pieces after her parents’ deaths, and Kathe Mazer is appropriately hard-boiled as the state attorney trying to catch someone in a cover-up.
