It is only fitting that a story about a family told in three parts should involve more than one narrator. Emily Watson, Georgia McGuire, and Richard Armitage complement each other's depictions of a dysfunctional household that is hiding secrets. Adam, a pastor, and Ulrika, a criminal defense lawyer, are stunned to hear that their teen daughter, Stella, has been arrested and accused of murdering a prestigious businessman. Armitage opens the story with a strong interpretation of Adam's views on his family and his faith, emphasizing the strict hold he has on his daughter. Watson and McGuire pair well together, voicing a mother and daughter who are parallel in tone yet befitting and distinctive. These narrators embody a family that is not so normal after all.
