Delia Byrd returns home to Georgia from a fast-paced rock-and-roll lifestyle in Los Angeles to reunite with the daughters she had to leave behind. Dean Robertson's voice is perfectly suited for the tones of these Deep South characters. Her voice is at once lilting and gruff, maneuvering through Dorothy Allison's text like a raft on oftentimes turbulent waters. The story is about familial relationships being mended, relationship with the self being forged. Robertson does an excellent job illustrating those and the many other psychological nuances in Allison's novel. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
