Orlagh Cassidy delivers Betsy Lerner's tender memoir with warmth and affection. Lerner lets us in on her early strained relationship with her mother. Once she moves back to New Haven, Connecticut, at age 54, however, her own life experiences open her eyes and heart to her mother, now 83. From her conversations with the regulars of her mother's Monday afternoon bridge club, we get to know the women Lerner has seen every Monday for years without really knowing them. Cassidy presents the women's histories--their marriages and careers, their trials and triumphs. As Lerner develops insights into the women, she gains a deeper respect for each as well as an understanding of her mother's life. Cassidy's Yiddish pronunciations are off, but, overall, she's terrific in this touching story. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
