This novel's story is told by Pippa, who speaks of "now" and "then," and by Amanda, who refers to "before" and "after." Two competent narrators, Barrie Kreinik and Jessica Douglas-Henry, guide the listener through this story, which involves the two characters and four time frames and which doles out information in short segments that continually change voice and perspective. The characters' accents fit the setting--high on the rugged coast of Australia. Kreinik expresses puzzlement as Pippa's "then" voice tries to make sense of what she saw on the cliff. Her "now" voice is more nuanced as she evaluates its ramifications on her life and relationships. Douglas-Henry makes Amanda's "before" voice conversational. Her "after" voice sounds more detached as she speaks from the afterlife. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
