From AudioFile:
Gifted narrator Susan Ericksen uses all her well-honed talent in this story of bickering siblings. After her parents die, Corlis McCrea moves back to North Carolina and her family's rambling mansion, willed to all three children. Her timid younger brother has never left home, but her older brother moves back in, sparking much conflict. Ericksen portrays all of Shriver's characters with equal skill but shines brightest when Corlis is center stage in this story of a middle child who is trying to make everything work out well. Shriver and Ericksen deliver a literary examination of generational legacy and why we are the people we turn out to be. R.O. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
