In Anoka, Minnesota, 45-year-old Lee Reston is once again in tears. Widowed nine years earlier, she's now lost her 25-year-old son in a tragic motorcycle accident. His fellow police officer, 30-year-old Christopher Lallek, steps in to console the grieving family. Stirred by Lee's warmth, missing in his own family, Christopher falls for her and finds a willing lover. But it seems marriage is out of the question. Daughter Janice has a crush on the handsome cop, and the extended family doesn't believe the winter-spring romance will last. Barbara Rush's quavering voice makes middle-aged Lee into an octogenarian; furthermore, she never seems to fully enter into any role. However, her vocal differentiation is satisfactory enough that, despite her lackluster reading, listeners will find themselves drawn into the story. E.V.
