MEANT TO BE is a captivating memoir by the editor of PARADE magazine. Read perfectly by George Guidall, the book is an inspiring story of self-discovery. Guidall uses a low-key approach that is particularly effective in scenes such as the one when, following the funeral of the man he thought was his father, Anderson learns that the man he buried was not his natural father—his actual father was a Russian-Jewish man his mother had fallen in love with while her husband was fighting in WWII. Anderson also chronicles his struggles to succeed as a writer and his search for his half-brother. Guidall’s narration seems more understated than usual, perhaps because the material itself is so compelling. Regardless, Guidall’s narration is the ideal complement to Anderson’s riveting story.
