Narrator Kimberly Farr's gentle, measured performance is perfect for this family saga, which is replete with secrets and dysfunctional relationships. The story starts in the near future, after climate change has hit its tipping point, and then moves back in time before returning to the beginning. This audiobook is also a commentary on environmental issues and the complex ways that four generations of the Greenwood family depend on trees and forests--as livelihood, solace, and identity--for more than a century. Farr's personable delivery paints vibrant portraits of the fully realized characters, strengthening listeners' empathy for their flaws and intentions. At the same time, she allows listeners to form their own opinions about them and the choices they make during times of economic and ecological change.
