In this bittersweet audiobook Beth Fowler narrates a woman's struggle as her husband lies in a coma after a freak accident. Fowler is truly convincing in her portrayal of Lainey; listeners can hear the weariness in her voice, as well as her determination to carry on for her two young children. Fowler gives genuine life to supporting characters. Most notable is Lainey's nextdoor neighbor and friend, who helps Lainey to cope by giving her a renewed sense of self. More than a story of women helping women, though, this is an audiobook of love and what we do to create, nurture and preserve it. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
