Reviews

In 1961, 16-year-old Laurel Nicholson witnesses her beloved mother murder a strange man. It's not until 2011 as the now fragile mother celebrates her 90th birthday that Laurel attempts to learn the truth behind this shattering event, which she's kept secret. Time and viewpoint move from World War II London to rural England in the 1960s to 2011. Morton is particularly adept at rendering people and situations, which are never quite as they seem. Narrator Caroline Lee is brilliant; characters personify their time and place perfectly. Listeners may need to remind themselves that there is only one reader. VERDICT In addition to those who appreciate superior writing, family-saga and historical-fiction fans will find much here to enjoy.-Susan Baird, formerly with Oak Lawn P.L., IL (c) Copyright 2013.
