Elizabeth Sastre and Nicola Barber adeptly share the narration of a thrilling story of family scandal. Sastre gives voice to the suspicious Seraphine Mayes, a contemporary young woman who has begun to wonder about the true nature of her parentage. Sastre delivers the character's fearful observations in a tone of youthful suspicion and anxiety. Barber voices Laura, a young au pair in the 1990s, giving her a voice of naïveté and expressing the deep distress Laura feels when making difficult choices. The dual narrators make it easy to discern between two perspectives and time frames with their own pacing and emphasis. What results is a thrilling mystery with two powerful performances.
