Narrator Robin Miles transforms this touching and humorous story of a woman’s victory over significant odds into a winning audiobook. Tasked with depicting Southern women across the generations, men of all ages, and even New York transplants, Miles awes even the most dedicated listener. Notable are the neighbors of protagonist Anna Abbott, single mother and hairdresser whose island home is the place of her dreams: Middle-aged Lucy’s dialect and speeches are as flamboyant as her behavior and dress. Elderly Miss Mavis, who comforted Anna on the worst day of her life, is portrayed as the quintessential Southern belle. Together, a diverse group supports Anna in her quest to move from tragic victim to joyful personhood. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
