Narrator Hillary Huber is enchanting in the role of a daughter who is spilling her mother's dark secrets. Raised in the 1950s, the daughter details the strange habits and lore of her single mother. Dangerous herbs, a father turned into a garden gnome, deadly prophecies--the daughter hardly knows what's fantasy and what's real. Huber's vulnerable confessional tone for the daughter contrasts nicely with the ringing cultured voice of her mother. Huber deftly handles the sardonic humor and emotional depth of Atwood's writing. The power of mothers and the power of story are at the heart of the tale. Both Huber and Atwood are at the top of their form with a bewitching fable that will take up residence in the listener's mind. S.T.C.
