Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

In the South of the 1950s, cousin Nora comes to Lytton bringing shocking new ideas such as eating with Negroes and teaching colored children to read and write well enough to have jobs other than as maids and fast food employees. She also brings the vibrant life and romantic color of Cuba and Miami into the lives of Peyton McKenzie and her widowed father. Cristine McMurdo-Wallis captures Southern speech and also summons the true horrors of growing up for Peyton, including budding breasts and the Loser's Club. She is whiny and caustic as the awful Aunt Augusta. Siddons followers will be more than pleased with this rendition. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
