Amy Goodrow wants a new mother. Isabelle Goodrow never expected to be one but has struggled for the last 16 years to do it properly. Both have to marshal all the power of their situations, though it will still not be enough when Isabelle finds her daughter has fallen in love with her math teacher. The explosion that follows raises them both to new levels of understanding and compassion. Reader Stephanie Roberts seems to love her characters and pulls their voices out of herself, not just for Amy and Isabelle, but for the others as well. Stacy, Amy’s brassy friend, and Fat Bev, whom she works with in the mill, become almost Dickensian voices that ring inside us long after the tape is over.
