Maud is slowly losing her short-term memory, but she does know that her friend Elizabeth is missing. Davina Porter narrates Emma Healey’s compelling story of memory, identity, and loss. A story about someone who has to repeatedly ask the same questions may sound tedious, but both Healey and Porter are at the top of their game, and the result is a compelling audiobook. Porter modulates her voice to sound slightly younger or older depending on whether she’s narrating a present-day portion of the story or scenes from Maud’s past. It could have been difficult for the listener to differentiate between the time periods, but Porter’s performance invokes just the right amount of subtlety to make it easy, thus making this an outstanding listen.
