This deceptively layered story of mental illness, lies, infidelity, and forgiveness is served up with a supernatural twist that will at times confuse the listener. Yet the complex mystery and suspense are satisfying. When Tavia Gilbert narrates in the voices of the father, who has recently died, and the mother, who committed suicide years earlier, it's difficult at times to tell who is speaking. However, Gilbert shifts between the living and the dead with skill. Her portrayals of 20-year-old Marina and her agoraphobic 16-year-old brother project a convincing sense of loss and grief. With flawless pacing, Gilbert reveals a shocking family secret that adds to the suspense-filled drama and theme of forgiveness. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
