by | Read by Joan Plowright

Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1994

Alone and fearful of her encroaching death, an elderly Italian woman writes a letter of love, confession and advice to the granddaughter she raised, now estranged and living in America. Using a slight Italian accent and a conversational approach, Joan Plowright's mature voice enhances her flowing delivery. She conveys naturally the various emotions involved in reliving the past and revealing secrets--sometimes with sadness, joy and regret. Plowright is perfect for Susanna Tamaro's wonderful first-person message of love, truth, wisdom and courage; she leaves the listener wanting more--an unabridged version, perhaps.
