Young Daisy clearly has some issues. She keeps hearing her dead mother's voice, and this time it's not from home movies. Will her strange discovery accomplish what she once thought was impossible - bringing her mother back to life? Part science fiction fable, part realistic journal of an aching loss, The Reminder is a moving account of a modern family's attempt to deal with death. This is a fast-paced listen with real power, and performer Kelly Smith does an excellent job conveying the range of raw emotions.
Daisy, otherwise known as Daze, hears her dead mother's voice. Sometimes it's because of her dad, who likes to watch old home movies when he can't sleep. Sometimes it's because of her brother, who is too young to remember Mom, and needs to be reminded by looking at photographs and watching videos. Sometimes it might just be her mind trying to work out what her therapist would call "issues". But this time, it’s none of those things. It’s something much more wonderful and much more terrifying, something Daze never thought possible. And it might allow her to do what she couldn't years ago: save her mother's life.
