Mark and Paula’s storybook marriage ends when Paula demands a divorce after she spends four months in Rome, working with world-famous movie director Tony Troncati. Patrick Lawlor’s performance of Mark’s initial shock and devastation is powerful and believable. His rich characterization of Paula’s overnight success, new boyfriend, and high-powered legal advisers contrasts sharply with his depiction of Mark’s growing anger, depression, and escalating fears. Lawlor also captures Mark’s anguish over the couple's down-and-dirty custody battle over 5-year-old daughter Maddie, which is fueled by false accusations. Narration from Mark’s point of view restricts the listener’s insights into Paula’s character and the seductive power of fame. However, the surprise ending is worth the wait in a story that reveals how far a father will go to get back his child. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2011]
