Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Narrator Catherine Milte’s accent transports listeners to southern Australia. It’s almost Christmas, and 84-year-old Lola Quinlan is busy hatching a plan to bring people to her hotel over the holiday. She’s also looking forward to doing what she does best—being the backbone of her family. Milte’s pacing and modulated voice capture the diverse range of characters with precision—from spunky Lola to her embittered granddaughters and a moody great-granddaughter, from a suicidal young man to an elderly Italian. Milte’s transitions from one voice to the next are smooth, and her Australian accent gives added authenticity to a heartwarming story. M.F. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
