The incomparable Cassandra Campbell shines again with an excellent audiobook performance. This fast-paced, absorbing novel follows Peggy, a winning protagonist, into and out of myriad relationships. We root for her as she navigates her staid Southern parents, challenging husband, pompous in-laws, and beloved children. Campbell, as always, creates a believable cast of characters with her acrobatic voice and accents. She captures the wry humor that is a staple of the novel’s tone, as well as the omnipresent irony of trying to be oneself in an environment that values only conformity. When Peggy’s marriage dissolves, she breaks out on her own; the listener will be glad to go along for the ride. L.B.F.
