This Southern gothic story "begins with a house, and it ends in ashes." Kirby Heyborne delivers the narrative in a voice as straightforward as a newscaster's, recounting even the most disturbing events without judgment. At the same time, he breathes life into the characters through their dialogue, shining a light on a uniquely Southern way of life that is fading away. Diana, the last in a long line of Cookes, carries the weight, hope, and despair of trying to revive and maintain a lost lifestyle. Copperton, an enigma, evolves from a smooth-talking suitor to an abusive husband with cruelty and vulgarity dripping from his voice. Son Ashton's voice overflows with hurt and anger as the family's facade crumbles. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
