Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1994

The Family Heart is one mother's personal recollection of the emotional ups and downs that followed her college-aged son's unexpected announcement of his homosexuality. Stockard Channing gives a convincing performance of a loving mother who experiences feelings ranging from bewilderment and confusion to outrage and sadness and finally resolution and activism. The pace of this audiobook speeds up and slows down to match the wide range of changing emotions. Channing's clear, measured delivery with just a touch of Southern accent is well suited to this revealing true story.
