THE YEAR OF PLEASURES

by | Read by Sandra Burr

Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Sandra Burr brings genuine expression to this remarkable story of a woman's adjustment to widowhood. Her clear and easy narration beautifully captures the diverse feelings experienced by protagonist Betta Nolan. Burr's initial vocal characterization of Betta's disc jockey friend Ed is weak, but it strengthens into a deep, booming radio voice that is perfect. From that point, her depictions successfully convey a large cast of characters and diverse accents. The hardened voice of the elderly Lydia captures the embittered woman, and the broken English/Italian speeches of Giovanni are simply charming. Burr is masterful in voicing Betta's struggle to build a new life while still treasuring the love, spirit, and wisdom of her late husband.
