Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Suzy Aitchison

Romantic Fiction • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

This is a mood lifter, this story of a woman left to cope with her precocious 10-year-old daughter when her husband decides to pack and run. Olivia must also cope with a house full of builders who are slowly making progress on reconstructing her house. Along comes Suzy Aitchison, an outstanding reader, who makes these true-to-life characters more wonderous than the printed word could do. There's so much life and energy in her every phrase. Best of all, each person is so well differentiated that we don't need to hear their names to know who is speaking. Aitchison plays the 10-year-old girl, a dashing male neighbor, a Greek carpenter, old women, suave urbanites. The author and she were very fortunate to have settled on each other's work for this excellent production. J.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
