Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Narrator Susan Spain introduces listeners to the residents of Thank the Lord Boardinghouse, a surreal establishment on the Maryland coast. The boarders are a disparate group, which includes a naïve young woman who is looking for love in all the wrong places, an omniscient octogenarian, a former career diplomat, an undercover federal agent, and the house's autocratic owner. Spain's performance bolsters a lackluster plot and links a cast of unlikely--and often unlikable--characters. Her pacing and intonation accurately portray the various personalities and interpersonal relationships. G.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
