Sandra Burr gives a tour de force performance of Hoffman's novel that tells the tale of missing children, murdered mothers and migrating sea turtles. Every May the sea turtles confuse the lights of Verity, Fla., for the moon and invade as quickly as they can. But the residents act up as well, and a divorced mother and a cop must solve the puzzle. Burr is a true professional who knows her limits and chooses to push them at every turn yet never oversteps her boundaries. With chameleon changes in tone and pitch, Burr can fill the shoes of any character that comes her way. Hoffman's tale is perfectly suited to Burr's talents, and listeners will be enthralled from start to finish.
