Arden Arrowood knows loss. Arden's younger sisters went missing when she was just 8 years old, and she has spent the 20 years since searching for them—and for the girl she was before. Narrator Sarah Scott does a compelling job of bringing Arden to life for listeners. After several moves, and the death of her father, she returns to Arrowood, her family home. Once home, she tries to discover what happened to her sisters while also attempting to figure out who she is and what comes next. Scott transitions between characters—and between memory and the present day—seamlessly altering tone, inflection, and cadence. Her delivery enhances the story while building toward the chilling conclusion. Despite the darker plot points, Scott makes Arden's journey relatable for anyone who struggles to avoid being defined by the past while also trying to understand it.
