The death of Emily Davis awakens remembrances of the many times she unselfishly helped her friends. Through these reflections, the listener comes to know Emily as a strong, kind and resolute person admired throughout her community. Watford reads the story with finesse and charm in a gentle, soothing style, perfect for a Miss Read book. She expertly draws upon her imaginative range of voices, which are enhanced by her ability to imbue characters with individuality and personality. Watford enlivens and tells the story with a magical enthusiasm, which enfolds the listener into its tale. An almost perfect match of performer to book, which was, sadly, Watford's last before her death in February 1994. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 95]
