Each narrator skillfully captures the definition of the word “brink”—a point at which something unwelcome is about to happen—which is illuminated in these stories. Standouts include "Getting There And Away," in which Tanya Eby's rendering goes from joyful to terrifying as a couple honeymoon in Bali as terrorists strike. Mikael Narramore's heartbreaking delivery reflects the horror of a teenage girl's dad when he finds a mysterious bag in the basement, and his fears are realized in "The Worst You Can Imagine." In "Everything All at Once," listeners meet a divorcing woman who is selling household items on Craig's List at the same time that she must cope with her elderly mother's unexpected illness. Amy McFadden's conversational style is ideal for this bittersweet story. Lovely music adds the perfect touch. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
