THE JOYS OF LOVE

by | Read by Maggi-Meg Reed

Young Adult Young Adult • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Beloved for A WRINKLE IN TIME, Madeleine L' Engle did not receive much critical acclaim for her other work, including this semiautobiographical story of a young aspiring actress in New York. Maggi-Meg Reed brings it alive with just the right balance of pleasure and determination. Reed moves easily between a varied cast of characters, who are serving as apprentices in a theater production company. Her enunciation is suggestive of the 1940s setting of the narrative, and her choice of pacing has the effect of a play reading itself. Reed believably depicts both males and females and portrays a multitude of moods, including despair, hope, and, as the young protagonist falls in love, romance.
