Alana Kerr Collins affectionately narrates this tragic love story with a beautifully calm tone and Irish accent. Both belie the racing thoughts of Grace, who loses Henry, the love of her life, when he's killed in a bike accident. Grace is shattered until Henry's long-lost twin, Andy, portrayed by Euan Morton, shows up. This dramatic twist is given gravity, thanks to the talented narration and the story's subtle nod to a secondary character's love of soap operas. Collins shows range with her shrill portrayal of Henry's mother, which contrasts with the quiet pauses of Grace's own protective parents. Andy is Australian, and Morton's accent is good, but overall his voice is devoid of emotion, which contradicts his character's humble and generous nature. Nonetheless, this is a great story enhanced by Collins's outstanding narration. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
