In this long-awaited collection of short stories--Hempel's last title was published more than a decade ago--there is a gorgeous matter-of-factness to her narration, a graceful simplicity that creates an almost hypnotic pattern among these distinct stories. Whether characters are pondering animal or human relationships, conflicts or resolutions, gains or (more often) losses, each story has its own sense of stillness, which Hempel's voice respects and quietly celebrates. In fact, Hempel's words and voice join forces to give the listener permission to feel life differently, more intensely--to be aware and appreciative of whatever life gives, knowing that it goes on regardless of our expectations or desires. Her thoughtful stories and gentle delivery make SING TO IT well worth the wait. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
