Lucy Taylor's enthusiastic performance will hook listeners as they sort out complex characters from three generations. Center stage is Sophie, a lost 17-year-old who suffers from hatred for her mother, a love of overeating, and an inability to recover from the death of a friend, killed in an accident while Sophie was driving. Through her relationship with her artistic Aunt Fran, Sophie's growing understanding of her family's past illuminates her future. As Lucy Taylor leads us through various viewpoints and family intricacies, our caring for the characters deepens and her well-acted dramatization helps us see their emotional connections, as well as the links forged in the aftermath of the Vietnam War.
