Novelist Emma Hooper is also a musician, and in this audiobook her instrument is the language of Newfoundland. The virtuoso who plays that instrument is narrator Nicole Power, a native Newfoundlander whose authentic accent brings the dialogue alive for listeners. It's 1992, and the cod have disappeared from the fishing communities they once sustained. This devastating period in Canadian history is the backdrop for the story of the Connor family, who are slowly pulled apart by economic necessity. When their parents are compelled to move across the country to find work, 10-year-old Finn and his older sister, Cora, are forced to adapt to their new reality. Power's voices are pitch-perfect, both heartwarming and heartbreaking, in turn. D.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
