Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

This is a finely crafted story about two people who meet in the modern world and interact with each other in very adult ways. The husband of one was in Afghanistan while the other covered 9/11. The story is full of real dialogue and even more realistic reactions to sometimes tragic events. Johanna Ward adds even more layers to this book with an extraordinary performance of the material. When she’s narrating events, Ward’s British accent is forceful and spare. When she performs dialogue, her characters betray complex emotions and longings in the face of crisis. Ward’s performance is more than just a recitation of words. She embraces Barker’s prose, coaxes more meaning from it, and makes us understand it more fully.
