Emily Rankin's expressive narration and graceful tone guide listeners through this sympathetic story of the extended Strick family, whose members reside in a fictitious upper-middle-class town in the Hudson Valley. Anyone who has ever been part of an extended family--either as a parent, child, sibling, aunt, uncle, or grandparent--will find much that is familiar here. Rankin superbly distinguishes three generations, giving each character a unique and compelling persona. She expresses their rich emotional texture and exposes their vulnerabilities and longings. Listeners may even shed a tear or two as Rankin evokes the powerful scenes in which family members come to better understand and support one another. A relatable story and an absorbing listen.
