Narrator Imogen Church turns this story about Martha Storm, a selfless, colorless librarian, into a compelling mystery. Martha was cursed with a sadistic father and a spineless mother who never defied him. Only her Nana Zelda encouraged her to use her imagination as a child. Now, with her family members are gone, Church credibly portrays a middle-aged spinster who is often taken advantage of, even by her friends. When Martha finds a book with stories she remembers from childhood and an inscription from Nana Zelda suggesting that the old woman may still be alive, Church's ingenuous enthusiasm takes Martha on a journey to new truths. Thanks to Church's performance, listeners remain fully invested as Martha discovers her own well-hidden talents, along with deeply buried family secrets. An engrossing listening experience.
