Narrator Andrea Gallo captures the personal and professional journeys of attorney Roberta Kaplan in this history of how one couple of 44 years managed to undo the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and thus made marriage legal for same-sex couples. Gallo balances her delivery well, providing the right tone and emphasis as Kaplan juxtaposes her emotional struggles with her own coming-out story and her struggles as the lawyer who ultimately argued the case of same-sex couple Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer in front of the Supreme Court. Gallo's personal approach blends smoothly with the more deliberate exposition she must communicate when discussing the legalistic elements of the story. Gallo's narration adds emotional impact to this chapter in the long battle for marriage equality. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
