Maggi-Meg Reed's versatile narration envelopes listeners in this classic story about the first year of a marriage in the early twentieth century. The narrative begins when Annie leaves Brooklyn to marry Carl and settle in the Midwest, where Carl is attending law school. Annie is an enormously appealing character, made even more so by Reed's evocative performance. Her curiosity, charm, and independence come through in Reed's inviting tone and light Irish accent. Reed portrays Carl and the varied secondary characters with distinct expression and nuanced vocal mannerisms. While often nostalgic feeling, the audiobook contains a modern element with its frank depictions of sexuality. Whether this is a first or a repeat listen, this classic audiobook is a joy at any time of day. M.J. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
