Kyra Miller's soulful narration conveys the perfection of life's imperfections in author Rebecca Barry's touching memoir. When Barry moves to upstate New York to pursue her dreams--raising a family of young children and writing her book while helping her husband start a green-living magazine--she's confronted with less-than-dreamy consequences. Miller's high pitch and timing capture the rapid-fire of the children's unabashed questions, demands, and comments, which are silly and funny yet wise beyond their years. In lovely contrast is Miller's versatile and moving portrayal of Barry, who responds to life with slow cadences of quiet resilience; loud frustration; helpless, voice-breaking sorrow; and uplifted joy as she learns to appreciate the beauty in all these moments.
