Though short, this audiobook is powerful and thought provoking. Malin Barr portrays an unnamed first-time mother who is struggling with postpartum depression. Referring to her baby only by the nickname "Button," the new mother draws listeners into her struggles with stream-of-consciousness descriptions of her experiences. These include intrusive thoughts, struggles to communicate with her husband about how she is feeling, and her love for her new baby. As the young mom befriends an elderly man upstairs, they connect over their shared isolation and loneliness. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
