Julia Whelan performs this delightful novel about a young woman, Alice, who writes a story to comfort her best friend after a breakup. When the friend, Gabby, immediately meets her perfect mate, she passes the story on to another woman, who also meets the man of her dreams. Alice begins to wonder if her story has magical powers. Whelan portrays Alice's uncertainty about her writing talent and Gabby's confidence that Alice can make a living from her stories. Whelan's best portrayals are those of a strange elderly lady who summons Alice to her home in the forest and the handsome bookbinder who prints her stories for clients. Whelan has the right touch for the magical realism in this unusual audiobook. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
