Deborah Hazlett's clear, soft soprano is perfect as librarian Daisy Minor, a predictable Southern small-town girl who hasn't had any excitement in years. Daisy determines to change this on her thirty-fourth birthday. Hazlett expresses Daisy's dismay at the blandness of her life, as well as her determination to be made over into a seductress and find herself a man. Daisy's turnaround is accompanied by a number of mistakes--some comical, deriving from Daisy's naivete and inexperience--and some dangerous, as when Daisy unknowingly witnesses a crime and endangers her new life almost before it begins.
