When artist Elaine Risley returns to Toronto for a retrospective exhibit, she faces more than the ramifications of her professional career; the city is haunted by the ghosts of her past. When not working on the show, Elaine reflects on her difficult childhood, recalling it from both an adult perspective and that of the girl she was. Narrator Kimberly Farr gives the mature woman a slightly jaded, sometimes nostalgic tone, perfect for the artist who is coping with the unexpected results of fame. When the story shifts in time, Farr adjusts her inflections to reflect the innocent 8-year-old Elaine, who becomes hardened after a friend's betrayal and, later, after a failed first marriage. Listeners appreciate these aural cues as Elaine combs her memories for the keys to self-understanding. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2011]
