Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Julia Whelan immerses listeners in the lives of three generations of the Goldman and Weingold families, co-owners of the fictional Golden Hotel in New York's Catskills region. With a steady pace, Whelan keeps listeners fully engaged throughout shifts in point of view and time period. Whelan seamlessly captures the emotional nuances of characters of varied ages and genders, with credible accents when warranted. She creates an absorbing portrait of the marital strife, romantic entanglements, parent-child tensions, financial difficulties, and other concerns of these family members. The inviting atmosphere of the Golden Hotel is illuminated through Whelan's depictions of its welcoming staff, abundant meals, and enjoyable leisure activities. An entertaining summer listen for fans of family sagas. M.J. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
