At 38, Althea, a single mom with three nearly grown children, has suddenly become unemployed. An avid English gardener, Althea takes a gamble and attempts to become a professional. Her journey is riddled with obstacles, including a snobby younger sister, a selfish ex-husband, and a dwindling bank account. Vanessa Benjamin is a wonderful narrator; her Althea is a struggling working mom with a grand sense of humor. Benjamin's interpretation of Patrick Donahugh cleverly portrays a witty gentleman desperately trying to win Althea's heart. Overall, Benjamin presents a full cast of British characters with forethought and color. B.J.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
