Narrator Therese Plummer masterfully expresses the poignancy in this audiobook about a well-intentioned widowed mother who invites her three unsettled adult children on a European cruise. Plummer's gift for characterization is evident in her nuanced portrayals of Charlotte and her children, Lee, Cord, and Regan. She enables listeners to empathize with the characters as old wounds resurface and they struggle to resolve their difficulties and reconnect with each other. Particularly impressive are Plummer's unique and authentic-sounding male voices, including lightly accented ones for cruise ship staff. A host of complex issues, including marital discord, infidelity, abuse, and addiction, are illuminated under Plummer's care. Her lively evocation of life aboard a cruise ship will leave listeners longing for the smell of sea air. M.J.
