The Bommarito sisters and their disabled brother grew up in a dysfunctional family, which two of the three of them wasted no time escaping. Narrator Xe Sands gives every character a unique voice as Isabelle and her sister Janie are summoned home to help Cecilia when their mother has open-heart surgery. Isabelle's voice is staccato and unemotional as she recounts their past and her complex relationships with her family. Mother River sounds angry and judgmental as she takes out all the frustrations of her life on her daughters. The grandmother injects some comic relief as she insists, in her demented state, on being Amelia Earhart. Sands fills brother Henry's voice with love and enthusiasm as he embraces all of life with optimism and joy. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
