Sandra Burr gives credence to this horrific family drama about a child's near-drowning and subsequent brain damage. She reads the women's roles melodramatically, stretching out the performance, especially when a sister reveals she's HIV positive. Alternating with the serious drama, and serving as comic relief, are scenes from the nursing home where one of the sisters works. This story has it all--comedy, drama, even romance. Burr does a splendid job weaving all the plot lines together with minimal confusion. Listeners will be drawn to this inspirational story. A.G.H.
