Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Author Elizabeth Berg takes a wistful but hopeful tone in narrating her audiobook. Three lonely people come together to create a family, and Berg voices them as only the writer as narrator can, opening their interior lives for the listener. Arthur, Maddy, and Lucille are invisible because of their age or unpopularity. When they are seen, they're vulnerable to slights and jabs by other lonely people. Berg's dulcet reading makes the listener SEE the three in their various milieux, feel their loneliness as it settles in every corner of the book. Yet Berg adds soft laughter in some passages, softening the mood. This narration is a treat: to experience these characters from this author-narrator is about as sweet as Lucille's desserts.
