Narrator Marin Ireland excels at depicting the insular, privileged world of the Stockton family in contemporary Brooklyn Heights in this debut audiobook. Ireland gracefully takes listeners into an exclusive milieu of private schools, galas, and grand townhouses while beautifully conveying the frailties and emotional confusion that render this family relatable. In alternating chapters, Ireland expresses the nuanced perspectives of sisters Georgianna and Darley, and their sister-in-law Sasha. Ireland seamlessly shifts her tone and affect to bring forth Georgiana's panic disorder and anguish over a love affair, Darley's distress about her husband's job loss, and Sasha's difficulties with fitting into her husband's world. Ireland provides authentic characterizations for every supporting personality and sets a consistent yet propulsive pace. A surprisingly relatable family saga. M.J.
