Sarah Weddington recounts her experiences, struggles, triumphs and setbacks as the lawyer who won Roe vs. Wade. Mary-Louise Parker’s reading of this historical account is excellent. Her steady narration builds the listener’s interest and captures the excitement of Weddington’s challenge. The readability of the book is translated well by Parker’s easy, informal style. In an introduction by Linda Ellerbee, she and the author discuss the current political scene and feminist movement. Weddington’s persistent urging of listeners to stay involved and aware fits beautifully with Parker’s narration. This provocative history lesson is well-narrated and abridged.
