"Ellie's life is changed when her sister, Lila, is murdered, and Thorpe, a professor in whom she confides, writes a book about the murder. Twenty years later, Ellie meets the man who was identified in the book as the murderer, and she sets out in search of the truth. Carrington MacDuffie reflects the character of Ellie as she ages and matures, transitioning smoothly from Ellie's initial conversations with Thorpe to their later talks as she begins to unravel the truth about her sister's death. In her characterizations MacDuffie contrasts Ellie's steady energy with the self-absorbed arrogance of Thorpe. Without overplaying the story's strong emotions or sad events MacDuffie gives depth to Ellie's narrative voice. Overall, MacDuffie's performance depicts the tragedy of Lila's death and the events surrounding it. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
