Emmy Award-winning Lynn Whitfield delivers a sassy, compassionate, and totally enchanting reading as a 40-something San Francisco housewife struggling to find her next path in life. Whitfield shines as Marilyn Grimes, who is trying to rebuild her world after sending her kids off to college and discovering that her husband has been less than faithful. McMillan's characters are all lovable, even as they bumble along worrying only about themselves, and her writing alone draws the listener into the web. Whitfield takes it further, giving individual voices to each personality, capturing each character's warmth and quirks in equal measure. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable story full of characters with depth and sensitivity. H.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
