      • content: Narrator Kathleen McInerney returns to perform this collection of six short stories featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. The stories focus on challenging domestic situations involving young women in the Amish community. In one story, listeners get to spend time with a teenage Katie Burkholder and witness the forming of her sense of justice and rebelliousness against the constraints of her Amish upbringing. McInerney manages through tone, pace, and intonation to differentiate males and females, young and old, as well as voice the Amish words that are woven throughout. McInerney raises the tension in each story through her dramatic performances. The story collection provides listeners with an exceptionally engaging audiobook, delivered by a masterful narrator. E.Q.
