Rebecca Lowman and CJ Wilson lead this immersive and timely debut, set in the late 1970s. Illuminated by the ensemble narration, the audiobook is a family saga involving a logger's dream and looming environmental devastation. Lowman channels the vulnerable strength of Colleen, the town midwife, who is struggling with the miscarriages taking place in the town, including her own. Wilson captures the rugged grit of Rich, who is faced with the enormity of losing everything while yearning to break the family logging legacy for his young son, Chub, who is skillfully brought to life by Mark Sanderlin. Exquisitely narrated in alternating chapters by members of the Gundersen family, this heartbreaking yet hopeful story is a must-listen.
