Like a Greek chorus, four female narrators work together in this short story collection to bring us a range of women's experiences. Adenrele Ojo, January LaVoy, Cassandra Campbell, and Bahni Turpin are all veteran voices, and it shows in their expert handling of each of these unique narratives. Their transitions between stories are seamless. Whether we're hearing about a young, aspirational couple applying to an elite school for their child or a young woman adopting a mixed- breed dog, we are in the care of supple sentences delivered with an understated lushness that belies the intense feelings of the characters. Told at a quick clip, the stories, each 20 minutes or less, zip by, leaving us wanting more. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
