Aria is no stranger to tragedy. Fifteen years ago, a family outing took the lives of her father and baby sister, leaving remaining members of this fractured family struggling with their own guilt--real and imagined. At twenty-five, Aria believes she can reinvent herself through her planned marriage with all its promise of a family of her own. Her infertility changes her life as swiftly and irrevocably as the urban landscape around her. With prose that is both eloquent and unflinching, Jones charts the emotional journey of her characters as they explore the painful territory of truth and the healing landscape of forgiveness.

Aria, short for Ariadne, relates her the story of her life in flashbacks and vignettes, beginning with the death of her father and baby sister and proceeding to her life in western Atlanta and in college. She speaks of her relationships with family, men, and women, and how they affect her life. Michelle Blackmon reads in soft, lush tones, expressing Aria's passion for life and friendship. Blackmon plays with accents and stereotypes of African-Americans and whites in the South, adding spice and color to the narrative. Jones shapes this novel with sophisticated language and imagery that add dimension to the story. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
