Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1950

Narrator Heather Henderson channels Betty MacDonald's wit and vivacity in this surprising and funny memoir chronicling her life as a single mother with two small children in Seattle during the Depression. Today this is a slice of history, but when it was originally published in 1950, it was intended simply to be entertaining. Henderson emphasizes the entertainment value with dramatic expression that adds to the characterizations of the people who color MacDonald's days--her can-do older sister, her steadfast mother, and her blustery bosses--one after another. Henderson's fresh delivery will turn listeners unfamiliar with MacDonald's work into new fans. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
