Cordelia Truscott's goal is to build a memorial library honoring her late husband, a senator from Georgia. Fundraising becomes more difficult when their daughter, Grace, a writer in Manhattan, refuses to omit the family scandal from her father's biography. With her distinct British accent, Donada Peters is an interesting choice for reader. Although she makes slight distinctions among characters' voices, there's no way she can sound like a New Yorker or a Georgian. By not assuming the role of any character, Peters becomes a raconteur rather than an actress. This adds intimacy and mischief to the family saga.
