Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Kathe Mazur's soft-spoken voice is well suited to this confessional novel in which a middle-aged artist takes stock of her life. After 20 years comfortably married and raising a family, Annie Black's reckless past comes back to haunt her, threatening to destroy everything she holds dear. Listeners are drawn into the story by Mazur's relaxed, natural delivery, which seems to blur the line between protagonist and narrator, creating an appropriately intimate atmosphere. The story is told nonchronologically, but listeners should have little trouble following the plot and piecing together the details as the ultimate indiscretion and its significance are slowly revealed. Despite the sometimes subtle characterizations and uneven Irish and British accents, Mazur's thoughtful performance enhances this story of family, relationships, and secrets.
