Mystery & Suspense • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Jesse Vilinsky embodies a young woman who is both confident and vulnerable. Medical student Josie Morrow embarks upon a life-changing journey to find her enigmatic mother, Margaret, in this compelling audio production. Born "Girl One" on an experimental homestead for prospective mothers in 1970s Vermont, Josie remembers only fragments of her childhood. With meager clues, she forges ahead on a suspenseful investigation. Vilinsky channels the former homesteaders' wide-ranging emotions as they grapple with memories and their place in a world that often reviles them. Vilinsky's adeptness at regional accents and nuanced characterizations extends to the visceral rage that is menacing Josie and the other women. The satisfying climax is enhanced by Vilinsky's well-paced performance. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
