British author and reader are perfect for each other in this multilayered contemporary tale of broken homes and family imperfections. Trollope's bestseller in England mirrors American step-families, as well. Higgins's work at London's best theaters is reflected in her unforgettable rendering of every character's needs so that the listener feels deeply for each of them. She can be the obdurate teen daughter of Matthew; the sweet 8-year-old son of Matthew's second wife, Josie; the stoic Matthew himself, and the bewildered Josie. Her voice is strong in the gamut of emotional states of former wives and husbands, their children, and second families' attempts at being just that--families! Trollope and Higgins are a powerful couple. R.N. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
