Narrator Cassandra Campbell channels the elegance of Dark's novel, which explores the meaning of friendship, marriage, and trauma. Irascible children's author Agnes Lee is one of the last remaining shareholders of Maine's Fellowship Point, a wild coastal community that she and her best friend, Polly, are determined to keep out of the hands of developers. Negotiations over the land complicate Agnes's life, which becomes even busier when an ambitious editorial assistant from New York City presses her to write her autobiography. Campbell's gentle narration reveals long-held family secrets, and close friendships come under fire. Campbell's well-rounded characterizations are delightful, including Polly's hesitant sweetness and Agnes's gruff impatience and no-nonsense directness. Though lengthy, listeners will gladly follow this absorbing story to its satisfying conclusion. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
