In this well-dramatized exploration of complex legal and emotional issues, a middle-aged woman loses her companion of twenty years when he abruptly leaves her for a younger woman, taking the prosperous business they've built together. After a rushed and breathless opening (which the producer would have done well to re-record), Merlington relaxes into a satisfactory delivery. Her narrative tone is good, and she voices characters well, though some of her deep-voiced males teeter on the brink of caricature. The sometimes extended expositions of fine legal points are kept well paced and lively. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
