Narrator Lisa Larsen captures the wonder of five strangers in New York City who receive mysterious invitations to the Fifth Avenue Story Society, held in an upscale library. Coral's elegant diction masks a painful broken engagement. Lexa's bold tones reflect her corporate ambitions. Ed is both a courtly retiree and a grieving widower. Chuck sports a noticeable New York accent and casual speaking style even as he rages over his custody battle. And Jett, about to publish his dissertation, sounds adrift as he questions his divorce from Lexa. Larsen switches seamlessly among characters with a calm, thoughtful narration. Christian themes emerge as each character's past unfolds. Overall, Larsen matches Hauck's charming conceit with a poised delivery. C.A. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
