Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Therapy, drugs, alcohol, and denial have failed to ease Jenna Rosen’s grief over her son’s drowning two years ago. When her husband’s barely suppressed contempt for her explodes at a party, Jenna leaves home on a ferry bound for Alaska. Jennifer Van Dyck offers an expert rendition of this story of Tlingit Indian spiritual beliefs, Jenna’s search for closure, and the complicated emotional landscape of her personal tragedy. Van Dyck's flawless performance gets out of the way of the story, letting Stein’s words carry the message. While she does deepen her voice a bit for males and thin it out for the elderly, most of her interpretive work is heard in subtle pacing shifts, which convey fatigue or urgency, longing or frustration with equal conviction in a polished performance.
