Cathleen Schine's humorous yet poignant look at contemporary life, love, and relationships makes for thoroughly enjoyable beach listening. In a fresh take on some familiar themes, an aging matron and her two middle-aged daughters learn lessons in loss, renewal, and survival. Using nuance and inflection, narrator Hillary Huber instantly captures the Weissmanns' Upper East Side smart set as she delivers dialogue full of dry humor and irony. Outright mimicry and a fine hand with accents make her just as convincing presenting the rest of the diverse cast. What Schine begins with her witty and insightful story, Huber completes with her engaging delivery. Grab the beach chair and sunblock—summer has arrived.
