Set adrift after accepting a buy-out from a sneaker company, former corporate executive Noreen flounders as she decides what to do next. Discovering that walking has less to do with vanity than it does with sanity, she joins neighbors Tess and Rosie in walking 10,000 steps a day around their small beach community. Almost imperceptibly changing her conversational timbre, Kymberly Dakin distinguishes each vastly different woman—and dramatizes the eventual discovery of all three that they are on the same path to middle age. Especially charming are Dakin’s portrayals of Noreen's naïve but lovingly concerned mother, who is adjusting to her own new circumstances, and Tess's petulant teenage daughter. Step by step, the members of the trio talk their way into self-acceptance and develop the courage to walk into the future. E.V.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
