Julia Glass has crafted another clever family drama, this time featuring four culturally diverse men whose lives converge by circumstance. This is a riveting multigenerational story about a family destined to navigate lives filled with love, loyalty, and conflict. Percy Darling's stolid retired life takes a turn when a New Age preschool moves into his barn and his grandson becomes involved in ecoterrorism. A Guatemalan gardener and a gay teacher at the school also become entangled in Darling's life. Mark Bramhall is entirely believable as he delivers each of the characters' voices. Bramhall's performance of Darling's strong Boston accent and curmudgeonly personality are particularly apt. The complex plot builds, drawing the lives of the men together until the moment when they’re all changed forever. A.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
