Nine talented narrators weave together this dramatic story. It's told from eight alternating points of view with one omniscient narrator commenting on the larger themes. In the near future in a familiar-seeming east coast town, the jarring reality of climate change, pandemic repercussions, and the rise of ecoterrorism seems unsettling and real. Beginning quietly, the story is rooted in deceptively familiar scenes--we listen in on family dinners and school art projects and hear about long-ago love stories--but soon the characters' voices register the urgency of large-scale climate repercussions as discord and danger threaten this seemingly safe harbor. Listeners may initially feel dazzled by so many voices, but the portrayals of the characters--deftly distinguished through tone and pacing--clarify their individual stories even as their fates become increasingly interconnected.
