Cynthia Nixon is the perfect choice to read Emily Giffin’s story of urbanite Claudia Parr and her struggle with her indifference to motherhood. Claudia ultimately pays the price for her indifference when her marriage dissolves as a result. Nixon’s voice practically drips with sadness and regret as she relays Claudia’s efforts to rebuild her world, and she shines as she reads with humor and wit Claudia’s forays into the next stage of her life. Surrounded by children or couples wanting to have children, Claudia attempts to reconcile the choices she makes with the life she winds up with. Nixon makes those consequences poignant, funny, tender, and believable as she creates a lovable cast of characters brimming with personality and verve. H.L.S.
