After losing her mother in a car accident, Boston teen Emily Benedict moves to North Carolina to live with her grandfather. Her arrival overlaps the short stay of pastry chef Julia Winterson, who is running her late father’s barbecue restaurant until she can pay off his mortgage and return to Baltimore. Rebecca Lowman presents an understated narration of this sensitive story of loss and love, conveying the sadness and hope of both young women. Thankfully, Lowman rarely delves into the regional dialect of the rural village, offering instead a straight narration of the various characters’ voices. While the audio initially sounds a bit too subdued, the listener soon comes to appreciate its subtlety and grace. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
