Tovah Ott performs this debut story collection from East Tennessee author Halle Hill. The 12 stories all feature Black women who are confronting societal expectations of how a "good woman" is supposed to look and act. One woman is secretly taking birth control pills while she and her husband are supposedly trying to have a baby. Another woman is attending a weight-loss group, determined to reach her goal in just a few months' time. Ott's narration makes every character sound unique as she captures each woman's voice and perspective. She uses a light Southern accent in her performance, adding just the right touch to her characters' dialogue. K.D.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
