Fascia is the debut collection of short fiction by Ashley Donielle Murray. Like the tissues binding the heart to its arteries, the stories in Murray's collection describe the threads, sometimes thin, sometimes strong, that connect daughter to father, husband to wife, and ourselves to our own histories.
Each story is its own quiet revelation and has the ability to bind the reader to this story long after it's been heard.

This book is a MUST to listen to. The stories are layered and complex. Because there are several narrators, the audio version of the book separates and brings texture to each individual story in a way that is not possible in print. Also, the music, by Bird Radio, adds emotion and momentum to the stories. The music is beautiful. It is unusual to have such impressive music in an audiobook.
My favorite story is Sweetwater. It is the story of a woman empowered, strong enough to leave the life long love of her life because she has grown away from him.
These narrators, I believe, have not done this before.
I would listen to it, twice, in one sitting if I could!
I believe that this is an innovative use of audiobook format, with the musical interludes between the stories, and some chapters. I find this format to be wonderfully entertaining. If the music enhances the story-telling, done well, as it is here, I enjoy the listening even more completely than with other books. I am so appreciative of this format.
