The impossibly sweet, perky Alice feels tense and alienated in her marriage to the charming, philandering, controlling, and wealthy Joe. When his firm transfers him from London to New York because of an indiscretion, the couple buy a fixer-upper in the country, where she begins, as it were, to get her groove back. But could she be falling for her best friend's beau? Can Joe reform? Can their marriage endure? Kate Reading's lively interpretation of this romantic fantasy makes the listener believe that all's right with the world. She makes these ordinary people seem more interesting than they deserve, thanks to unflagging energy and the strength of her own vocal personality.
