Fiction • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Leavitt’s latest novel explores tragedy and the reverberations it has on the lives of those it touches. Narrator Robin Miles provides an even-keeled delivery. Her approach works well, at first, as the novel depicts the initial tragic events: an accident that kills a mother, sends her son into shock, and leaves another woman wracked by guilt and unable to drive. The story develops more complexity as parallels are discovered between the women and lives converge in the aftermath, bringing healing and growth as new relationships are formed. Ultimately, Miles may not be the best match for the novel as the listener may be left wishing that her narration matched the emotional depth of Leavitt’s characters.
