Teddy, a California senatorial candidate, may have trouble getting the women's vote. His ex-wife hates him. His daughter won't talk to him. He hates his famous-painter mother, who's dying. And he's having sex out of convenience with his campaign manager. To increase his family values poll numbers, Teddy's people encourage him to create a photo op that shows him caring for his ailing mom. Fear not. Six CDs later, Teddy has undergone a life-changing transformation and managed to pull it all together on the island of Nantucket. Paul Boehmer's strong reading keeps the story from dipping too far into the soapsuds, and his Katharine Hepburn style voicing of the family matriarch sharpens the local ambiance.
