About this title

Synopsis:

"HEARTBREAKING...COMPELLING...The story carries you like a slow, implacable current."
--San Francisco Chronicle
Forty-something Sadie Hunter is a loner. But more than that, she is afraid of not being alone. Ever since her mother and Native American grandmother died together when she was a child, dancing cheek-to-cheek in a saloon in the middle of a violent storm, Sadie hasn't let anyone get too close. Not even Carlos, a passionate Cuban who sees the rich soul that Sadie tries to hide from herself.
Cynical and loveless, she becomes obsessed with learning more about her unacknowledged identity, torn apart by tragic family legends she can't quite believe. And although she tries to fight it, she half suspects that with Carlos's help, she could find the truth of the past, and it could set her free....
"A fluid, fun read--a story of self-discovery told by a woman haunted by female forebears while struggling to learn love....A work of accomplished introspection."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

From AudioFile:

Florida cracker Sadie Hunter makes her living chartering her boat to tourists. If she likes the guests, she regales them with stories. Eventually she begins to learn about herself from her own stories. Fowler writes for multiple narrators, so several people tell Sadie's story. Pamela Reed handles cracker voices well. However, Sadie, her mother and grandmother all sound so much alike it's difficult to determine who is speaking. Reni Santoni quietly reads a small part of the story as Sadie's grandfather, Sammy, a gentler man than any of the three women. Fiddle music soothes transitions, but these readers need no help carrying Fowler's plot. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
