Narrator Kirsten Potter finds complementary voices for the characters of Gangiegow, Scotland, just as Rachel stitches together complementary tartan squares for the quilts she loves to make. She journeys to Scotland as a widow, bringing her daughter, Hannah, to meet her husband's family, not realizing her old flame, Brodie, has also returned to the village. Potter manages the intricate details of this contemporary small-town story with aplomb. Incorporating Scottish terminology and accents into her character-driven voicings, she differentiates Scots of various ages and temperaments. Overall, Potter ensures that each character is interesting and unique. Hannah's is the most memorable voice--the American 5-year-old immediately copies the Scottish brogue with adorable high-pitched pipings. Kirsten Potter's trademark low pitch and rounded enunciation bring warmth to the inimitable Scottish Highlands. C.A.
