Can Julia, a high-strung Manhattanite who gave up her free-spirited lifestyle to marry a struggling actor, find happiness (two children and many years later) as the wife of handsome Joe Ferraro, now a popular TV star and Golden Globe nominee? Julia thinks so--until she accidentally hears one of Joe's voice mails and discovers a message from a filthy-mouthed sex kitten. Cassandra Campbell's spot-on reading takes listeners through Julia's inability to confront Joe, her obsessive re-listening to his voice messages, and a personal crisis that drives her to therapy, hair extensions, dermabrasion, lip plumping, and BOTOX. Campbell has a ball with Ann Leary's cleverly written, darkly humorous take on marriage, backstage politics, and the New York City "mommy" scene, especially the nursery-Nazi moms at Julia's son's prestigious multicultural day care. Much fun! S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
