After a scandal leaves Ellie in emotional and financial ruin, she seeks refuge in the house her late mother bequeathed to her. Narrator Xe Sands's serene voice keeps the listener engaged with Ellie's recovery, conveying a quiet resignation to her fate that slowly grows into enchantment with the community of St. Dennis, Maryland. Sands's fluid narration reveals the warmth and neighborly ways of the town's residents. She portrays Grace with a slow-paced, slightly quivering voice that reflects her age and wisdom. Handsome Cam's mellowness and sensitivity are conveyed with a gentle ruggedness and an easygoing style that charm Ellie. Sands's evocative portrayal of the characters also accentuates the surprises that await Ellie. M.F. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
