"Thirty-year-old Serena Stone, war photographer and daughter of two famous parents, begins a journey into her father's past as she writes a biography of his life. Narrator Stina Nielsen uses an even tone and an easy pace through much of the story. However, as Serena digs deeper into her father's past and her own experiences, Nielsen's voice takes on increased tension. Serena's story takes her from New York to Italy, and finally to Libya, and Nielsen expertly delivers the names of the places and people. While she provides little differentiation in the voices of the secondary characters, Nielsen accurately conveys the theme of Bradford's story, with its focus on family and love. E.N.
