When it comes to audiobook novels, most authors should stick to their writing and leave narration to the professionals. What a pleasure to find an exception! Pearl Cleage's warm voice, clear diction, and intelligent pacing highlight this well-crafted abridgment of her bestselling book. It helps that protagonist Joyce Mitchell tells her story in the first person--a story of a young widow who, in the midst of creating a purposeful new life, finds love again. It's a funny, sly tale, given authentic voice by the author. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
