Devon Sorvari gives a stunning performance of this timely and powerfully affecting audiobook about a young family in dire circumstances. Tuck; her husband, Paul; and their young daughter, Agnes, squat in her late grandmother's home on a remote Maine island, which has been willed to Tuck's long absent father. The family's meager funds are being depleted by Paul, who is addicted to an herbal opiate, and the family receives little help from social services. Sorvari wonderfully mines the resilience and bravery of the one-of-a-kind Tuck, who forages for seaweed to feed her daughter as she struggles to keep her family going. Sorvari imbues the novel's precise and poetic language with emotion and urgency, creating a hypnotic listening experience. This provocative and harrowing audiobook is essential listening.
