The author of the bestselling memoir THE DITCHDIGGER’S DAUGHTERS is back with a continuation of her story as an obstetrician and mother trying to live up to her father’s demand that all his daughters become doctors. Her success despite economic and cultural roadblocks is cause for celebration. Dr. Thornton also narrates her book, and she instills the work with heartfelt emotion and the unique care that an author can provide. Her voice is assured and pleasant, and she’s able to emphasize the key plot points with certainty and conviction. Thornton’s diction and pacing carry us through the book, but her voice has limited range and rises at unexpected moments, reminding us that she’s a doctor by training and not a voice actor.
