Narrator Angela Dawe's varied volume and pace create an atmosphere of deep emotions that draw the listener in close. Set in the late 1800s on the coast of the North Sea, this audiobook explores women's relationships--with children, with each other, and with spouses and lovers. Employing a variety of accents and voices, Dawe helps weave together the three focal points of the story: a couple who have lost three of their four children, the nuns and unwed mothers at the St. Margaret Home, and the misfit members of the traveling Ludwig Zirkus. Though this tale of healing and finding a safe and nurturing home includes light elements of magical realism, fully realized characters who have relatable issues and emotions take the forefront.
