Narrator Billie Fulford-Brown's light, musical voice carries listeners through this story of love, obligations, and dreams. In Segwick's debut, the narrative jumps around in time and between stories, but listeners never feel lost. In one part, Irish astrophysicist Róisín runs towards and away from her small-town childhood and intense attachment to her cousin, Liam. In another part, Chef François has wanderlust while still remaining close to his mother, Severine, a woman who can communicate with ghosts. Fulford-Brown's expressive voice conveys a plethora of emotions in pitch-perfect French, Irish, and English accents. Although this is a fantastical tale with love and ghosts, there's also science and rational thought. Fulford-Brown gives them all equal weight. G.D.
