Nothing could be worse than finding one's husband dead in a car (unless it's finding his illegitimate son on the doorstep). This comic mystery takes Julia Springer through more twists and turns than the mountain roads she drives. Before Miss Julia sets things right, she faces criminal charges, incompetency proceedings, public humiliation, and the other woman. Karen White's narration gives Miss Julia's speeches an authentic North Carolina flavor, without adding artificial sweetener. White never delivers a false note as Miss Julia's emotions range from despair to delight. She articulates the "good intentions" of the ministers who care for Julia (or at least her money) with a sarcastically benevolent tone. J.J.B.
