Narrator York Whitaker gives a mixed performance of this charming novel about finding your purpose in the unlikeliest of places. To celebrate finishing her PhD, Grace leaves Portland, Oregon, and heads to Las Vegas, where she marries a woman she hardly knows. Overwhelmed by postdoctoral choices, she spends the summer getting to know her new wife. Whitaker excels at voicing Grace's internal monologues but falls short voicing other characters. The diverse and engaging cast, who range from Grace's parents to her found family, all sound about the same. As a result, the dialogue is hard to follow. Nonetheless, listeners will appreciate the way Whitaker brings the novel's beautiful prose to life. L.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2021]
