Narrator Lauren Fortgang skillfully keeps listeners engrossed with this audiobook about a girl's desperate refusal to be separated from her sister. After their father's descent into madness, Verity indentures herself as a farmhand to stay close to her sister, Lilah, who has been adopted by the local school teacher. Superstitions flourish in this small Arkansas town, centering on an old well in the woods and the spirit that clings to it. Fortgang modulates her tone, adjusts the strength of a Southern accent to enliven a large cast of characters, and intensifies her pace when warranted. Listeners become immersed in the paranormal mystery of a town filled with secrets that won't stay buried. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
