Amy Scanlon and Liz Pearce create a compelling listening experience as they perform the alternating points of view of witch sisters Kaija and Minna. Their journeys diverge when Kaija leaves their woodland home for the Norwegian seaside community of their childhood and Minna, seething with hatred for the villagers who burned their mother, remains behind. The townspeople come alive through Scanlon's characterizations, all festering in an undercurrent of suspicion and fear. Scanlon balances Kaija's gentleness and strength as she seeks belonging by hiding her power. Left alone, Minna's vengeful nature begets a curse with tragic consequences. Pearce fuels her portrayal of Minna with the young woman's emotional vulnerability and passion for her magical heritage. Complementary performances enhance the portrayals of the sisters' development and familial connection. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
