Jane Oppenheimer's resolute cadence and crisp tone create the perfect palette for debut author Hillary Yablon's heartwarming and funny later-in-life makeover story. Coming home to her Florida condo, 63-year old Sylvia finds her husband engaged in passionate gymnastics with the neighborhood floozy. This incident prompts her to leave the tiresome man--who, by the way, has lost all of their money to bad investments--and the retirement community she loathes, and bravely begin a new life in Manhattan with her glamorous widowed friend, Evie. Oppenheimer's resonant tones and commanding delivery navigate Sylvia's riotous ups and downs with panache as she reignites her defunct wedding-planning business and plunges into the dating game. Lively characters, outrageous scenarios, and a thoroughly engaging performance make this a surefire hit. S.G. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
