A narrator named Jaime Lamchick introduces Harrow, a novel by Joy Williams, to potential readers. Lamchick tells us how the novel follows a woman who is ordered to leave her home and move into an abandoned mental hospital that once housed deaf-mutes. The protagonist's journey of self discovery will take her across the country as she attempts to escape her past while also trying to find out more about the mysterious hospital she finds herself in.

The audiobook narrators of Harrow by Joy Williams take on the roles of five characters who, at one point in time or another, come into contact with Harrow. Each character is unique and layered as they each experience their own personal struggles, while also relating to those of others.

There are a few things that make Harrow the compelling read it is. The first is the narrator, Jaime Lamchick. She does a spectacular job of capturing the emotions and moods that she feels for her characters with her voice. In many other instances, I have found narrators to be distracting or not able to take their characters from point A to point B on the page without creating an issue in my head. This narrator takes you there with ease and grace.

This is a beautifully written novel with a compelling and poetic story. The book is narrated by Jaime Lamchick who lets readers experience the guilt and confusion that the protagonist, Harrow, feels throughout his life.
