The first-person point of view, coupled with a skilled narration by Xe Sands, immediately draws the listener into Nora Stuart's story. Nora, a doctor, is hit by a van, and as she lies in the ER thinking she's dying, she overhears her boyfriend hit on another woman. This sends her home to Scupper Island, Maine, to recuperate and reconnect with her mother and niece. Sands smartly voices the Maine accent of Nora's mother and other islanders. Sands has the listener laughing as she brings the comedic elements alive and pulls their heartstrings at the sad moments, both of which give the story rich dimension. Because of the skillful narration, listeners themselves will want to hop the ferry to Scupper Island, along with Nora. S.B.
