Many who hear this audiobook will conclude that Robin Miles is one of the best narrators in the business. Josephine Evans has been a diva in Europe for twenty years; now anti-Americanism, resulting from the Iraq war, has turned her audience against her. She decides to go home to Atlanta to start a new life. There she meets an old friend, and they band together to try to oust an obnoxious developer who threatens to destroy their old neighborhood. Miles plays Josephine with extravagant gusto—she’s a feisty woman who can't tolerate unfairness. Expertly pacing her delivery, Miles portrays Josephine's militant patriotism, but behind all the bravado there's a well of sorrow. Listeners will thoroughly enjoy this offbeat plot and Miles’s totally convincing narration. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
