When a girl from a wealthy suburban family is abducted, her loved ones react in very individual ways. Buck SchirnerÕs voices parallel the personalities of GracieÕs family members, all of whom have their demons. He lends an introspective persona to her grandfather, who must confront his past in Vietnam. He energetically portrays GracieÕs independent mother, who explodes in rages at those around her, a pattern that masks a trauma in her past. And he gives a friendly tone to GracieÕs successful father, who must break free from an unhappy childhood. In their own ways they each love Gracie. Through subtle and effective accents and emotional tones, Schirner captures that love. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
