Kimberly Farr maintains narrative drive as Flagg's book follows several generations of a town's residents from 1889 to 2020. The story begins in 1889, when Swedish immigrant Lordor Nordstrom founds the town of Elmwood Springs, Missouri. It's easy to be lulled into thinking this is a typical idealistic story of old times--until the older generation begins to pass away, to be buried in the town's cemetery. Then things take an interesting supernatural turn. Farr's slow-paced, clearly enunciated narration completely fits the tone of the story. She creates excellent character voices and accents, adding charm to the production. Listeners will either love the author's take on what may happen after death or be completely put off by it, but Farr's narration makes for easy listening either way.
