Read by Thérèse Plummer
As members of the Catholic priesthood continue to be accused of sexual abuse, the author examines the effects of these accusations on the families and friends of the priests alleged to have committed such acts. This first-person narrative, from the point of view of Sheila McGann, sister of one such priest, is masterfully narrated by Thérèse Plummer. Plummer excels at narration that is emotional without being mawkish. While raising the question of whether or not Sheila’s brother is guilty, the novel also raises issues of faith in God and in one another. Plummer’s strong narration lends further weight to Haigh’s story, creating an audio experience listeners will want to immerse themselves in.

SING YOU HOME
Read by Thérèse Plummer, Brian Hutchinson
Music is an apt accompaniment to a story about a music therapist who finds herself falling in love with a woman after her husband leaves her. The songs, written by Picoult and Ellen Wilber, who performs them, are placed at relevant points in the heartbreaking story. Thérèse Plummer performs the women’s roles with pure expressions of joy, anger, and grief. Picoult also has a talent for male internal dialogue, which is performed superbly by Brian Hutchinson as husband Max. Max’s point of view smoothly shifts the story’s perspective with ironic guy talk that hints at both his manly feelings and profound vulnerabilities. Picoult conveys her characters’ transformations with her signature grace and empathy while shining a harsh spotlight on intolerance. A bittersweet and riveting listening experience.

THE LAST NUDE
Read by Barbara Caruso, Thérèse Plummer
In this account of art deco painter Tamara de Lempicka’s relationship with her model, Rafaela, buildings look like confections and sewing machines sound like cicadas. In fact, nearly every detail thrums with lush, sensual imagery. Rafaela is stumbling her way through Jazz Age Paris when she meets Tamara and becomes her lover and muse. Thérèse Plummer voices young Rafaela with a contemporary inflection and captures her appealing energy. Plummer also balances the young woman’s naïveté with her somewhat desperate edges. Barbara Caruso narrates the artist’s part just as convincingly, immersing herself in the role of the emotional Polish painter. Her accent and direct tone provide an appropriate contrast to Plummer’s performance. This is an excellent production of a fascinating story.
