Martha Plimpton brings considerable talent to the story of David Henry, a man with a terrible secret. Plimpton captures the agony of David's decision to protect his wife from knowing that one of their twin babies was born with Down's syndrome. Plimpton's intelligent narration adds depth to the character of David, making his decision one that makes sense when viewed from his unique perspective. As Caroline, the nurse who secretly adores the doctor, Plimpton appeals to listeners' sympathy. Edwards has written a deeply moving drama covering twenty-five years in the lives of two families and exploring the damage a single lie can do to all involved. Plimpton's performance brings it all into sharp focus. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
