Veronica "Ronnie" Swan, a sheltered Mormon girl, is yanked into the larger world by the tragedy that begins this audiobook: the brutal murder of her two younger sisters. What follows is a cohesive, often brilliantly written, story of revenge, redemption, and peace, a story from which one cannot look away. Hope Davis's performance is spot-on as her voice reveals Ronnie's innocence and earnestness, maintaining consistency as the years pass. While some of the adult dialogue sounds overly dramatic, that's how it's written. Further, this quality clarifies to the listener that the story's true strength lies in Veronica's voice. Ronnie's emotional and personal journey is timeless, and Davis's vocal portrayal of her growth is ideal. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
