THE BEST OF US A Memoir

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Joyce Maynard

Biography & Memoir • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

In this soul-baring journey of love, tragedy, and recovery, author Joyce Maynard's satin voice delivers every emotion fluidly. In her mid-50s, Maynard finds the love of her life, and all is right with world. A year later, her husband is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. With great skill Maynard modifies her pitch and tone to reflect a register of emotions from joy to desperation. Tears erupt, and sorrow drips from every word, but Maynard never gives in to defeat. Rather than distancing herself from the futile circumstances she finds herself in, she embraces each moment and moves forward with overt pragmatism. At the same time, listeners will absorb the melancholy that lies beneath the surface of her journey of strength and self-revelation. E.B.
