Karissa Vacker and Hillary Huber deliver excellent performances in this gripping audiobook. The story, set in the Adirondacks, evokes themes of empowerment, personal growth, and discovery as it depicts emotional insights and decades-spanning intrigue. Vacker voices failed screenwriter Rowan, who discovers a mysterious handbook that may have something to do with a woman who went missing in the woods. Huber voices Eddie, the rich-girl hippie who started a women's retreat center nearby in the 1970s and then disappeared without a trace. Both narrators also voice other characters, building a distinctive set of characters that are easy to follow. Vacker's interpretations of Rowan's boyfriend, Seth, capture his nature. Most importantly, she illuminates Rowan's metamorphosis into an independent and creative woman. C.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
