At 36, Sophie Stanton is newly widowed. The stages of grief take her from her home in California to a new home in Oregon as she copes with denial, overeating, oversleeping, sloth, forgetfulness, and the deep sadness of missing her husband. Narrator Cassandra Campbell relates Sophie's erratic behavior with a heavy attitude, and there are so many unhappinesses in her story that the telling weighs the listener down. As Campbell goes on, however, the book becomes more enjoyable as the hope in Sophie's eventual recovery is revealed. J.P. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
