The evocative atmosphere of this mystery is greatly enhanced by narrators Andi Arndt and Emily Woo Zeller. The story takes place in Kentucky, moving between Annie Holleran's story, set in 1952, and her mother Sarah's, set in 1936. Arndt and Zeller portray Annie as a mature young adult whose family is flawed--even creepy. They give Sarah's voice a soft Southern accent. The characters are often moody, but the author's subtle humor is also reflected in the performance. Part of the story features the Hollerans' switch from growing tobacco to growing lavender, and descriptions of that lovely scent adds much to the novel. The narrators' deceptively simple reading imparts realism to a complex and strange story. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
