Kelechi Ezie's narration brings warmth and compassion to every character in this engrossing mystery. The time period is shortly after WWI, a period of upheaval across the nation. Ezie's silky voice slips easily into the complicated lives of the Mosby family. After migrating from North Carolina to Harlem, DeLilah and daughter Selma face numerous hardships with strength and determination. The shocking kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby grips the country, and when Selma's baby goes missing, Harlem's first "colored" policeman, Weldon Thomas, is assigned to investigate. Thomas does his best, but compared to the massive hunt for the Lindbergh baby, Chloe's disappearance gets short shrift. Ezie's rendering of Holloway's gorgeous prose and expert plotting add depth and poignancy to this heartrending story. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
