When a book and performance try this hard to be loved, there's only one thing you can do: refuse. Both book and narrator (at least, in the case of Alma Cuervo) aim to be found so sweet as to be irresistible. The story concerns Cornelia Brown, the charming, underemployed 31-year old manager of a Philadelphia coffeehouse, who believes romance should imitate THE PHILADELPHIA STORY. Through a series of events, she becomes the care-giver of 11-year-old Clare, daughter of her boyfriend and his ex-wife. Cuervo voices chapters narrated by Cornelia, and Jenny Ikeda--far more restrained--takes the ones narrated by Clare as the story twists to its sugary conclusion.
