Professional reviews

"When Stump, a mute boy, dies during what appears to be an attempted healing at a Church of God with Signs following worship service, the community of Marshall, North Carolina, will never be the same. Most affected is Stump's brother, Jess, who witnessed the events leading up to his brother's death. Three narrators deliver the story--one for each of the main characters whose points of view Cash explores. Particularly impressive is Nick Sullivan, who narrates from the point of view of Jess. Sullivan manages to project a youthful demeanor without falling into the trap of an overdone falsetto and succeeds in authentically depicting Jess's fear and confusion following his brother's death. Lorna Raver and Mark Bramhall also fully inhabit Cash's complicated, sympathetic characters, giving performances that are full of genuine emotion. This is one of those audiobooks in which author and narrators all excel, delivering an unforgettable listening experience. J.L.K.
