Like a modern-day Rapunzel, Norma's hair has magical properties. In this Finnish tale, Norma also gains special powers through her magic hair: She can read other people's emotions through her hair's reaction. Narrator Fiona Hardingham is an excellent choice for this complicated twist on a familiar story. She uses a steady, capable delivery to connect the listener to the winding storyline, which includes an international crime syndicate and long list of characters. Hardingham gives this feminist story a strong undertone through her crisp pronunciation and consistent cadence. Did Norma's mother kill herself? How many people know about her secret power? These are some of the questions that will keep listeners engaged until the dramatic ending. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
