This is the type of novel that leaves the listener wondering whether to read further, yet one keeps listening. The story centers around an immigrant family whose son disappears at Ellis Island. Eventually, Esther Lipshitz's loss becomes an obsession--she believes that her missing son is Charles Lindbergh. Roughly seventy years later, Esther's great-grandson, a novelist named Cooper, receives clippings and other materials detailing his grandmother's obsession, and the story continues. The story is weird, yet fascinating, and Kirby Heyborne's narration complements the material. Heyborne shifts between the voices of Russian immigrants and Americans with ease. In addition, he captures Cooper's rage at the events that he believes have overtaken his life. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
