Professional reviews

"This audiobook would be lost without Jenny Sterlin. The title unintentionally reflects a plot that meanders and an abundance of allusions that threaten to become a self-indulgent literary ramble. But Sterlin makes us care about Winifred, a Boston writer who is bewildered by her next book and her future. She's further perplexed when she goes to visit her London cousin, for whom she has complicated feelings, and finds he has disappeared. Sterlin indulges this character, gives us keys to her sensibilities, and thereby centers the book. Delivering the delight of literary worlds from Barre to Dickens, she plays up the humor of the novel and gives us a proper chill when it evolves into a ghost story. S.W.
