Reviews for Impossible

AudioFile Reviews 2009 February/March
Emily Durante portrays secure, stable 17-year-old Lucy Scarborough, who is beloved by her foster parents. Soon tension creeps into Durante's voice as Lucy's mad, homeless mother lurks around her school and home. Durante also registers Lucy's anxiety at meeting the strange man with the lilting accent who has charmed everyone at her foster mother's place of employment. Skillfully, Durante transports listeners from a realistic high school story to a suspenseful fantasy. Lucy, and those who love her, must work to perform three impossible tasks to free her from the curse of the Irish stranger, who turns out to none other than the Elfin King. Can they save Lucy from the madness he's brought to generations of women he's impregnated before her? S.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
