Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

In this enjoyable family story, Glass and Masterson portray a pair of vastly different sisters. As Louisa and Clem tell their story in alternating chapters, their disparities are heightened by the narrators’ interpretations. Glass gives practical, cautious Louisa a no-nonsense voice while free-spirited Clem comes across as the lively, adventurous woman she is. Masterson’s professional experience lends her character the expressive quality that the younger, freewheeling sister embodies. Both narrators delight the listener with humorous depictions of an elderly aunt with a past and the sisters’ mother, ever ready with a cliché to address any situation. The women move through adulthood, sharing as best they can life’s struggles and tragedies and embracing a sisterhood that is uniquely their own.
