Fictional bestselling author Octavia Frost says, “There are some stories no one wants to hear. Some stories, once told, won’t let you go so easily.” For her new novel, Octavia has rewritten the final chapters of all her published stories, changing painful details as she attempts to rewrite her past. Kimberly Farr gives form and substance to Octavia’s first-person narrative and novel excerpts. When Octavia’s estranged son, Milo, a rock star, is accused of murdering his starlet sweetie, Farr’s voice is coolly objective, seemingly unemotional, yet boiling beneath the surface. Farr is attuned to every subtlety and self-recrimination as Octavia looks into the murder and reflects upon writers, writing, and relationships. Beautifully performed by Farr, Carolyn Parkhurst’s compelling narrative is a story that “won’t let you go so easily.” S.J.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2010]
