Close My Eyes

Sophie McKenzie, read by Marisa Calin. Macmillan Audio, unabridged, 11 CDs, 12 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-3217-5
Imagine losing a daughter at childbirth and living your life in a depression, only to have a mysterious stranger inform you years later that the girl is actually alive and well. This is the premise of Sophie McKenzie’s new novel, which is skillfully narrated by Marisa Calin in an inspired, emotional performance. Calin’s ability to capture the essence of the novel’s troubled, ravaged heroine, Geniver Loxley, is extraordinary. Calin’s pacing is steady, her tone is simple and understated, and yet her voice possesses a slight tremble during Geniver’s dialogue. In this audio edition, McKenzie and Calin—by the power of her performance—force listeners to wonder how they might act in a similar situation. A St. Martin’s hardcover. (July)
