Kathe Mazur’s narration is characterized by a sincere tone and slow pace in this memoir of Marton’s eventful life as an ABC news correspondent and wife of Peter Jennings and Richard Holbrooke. Paris is a touchstone for Marton. She was a student there during the 1960s student unrest, it was a meeting place with Jennings early in their relationship, and she and Holbrooke had an apartment there to hide away in. The book’s many French words and names are no challenge for Mazur as she zips through them without hesitation, lending authenticity to the production. Marton’s confession to having cheated on both of her famous husbands combined with her professions of enduring love is somewhat jarring, and Mazur’s earnestness exacerbates that discomfort. Nevertheless, the sense of loss when Holbrooke unexpectedly dies feels honest in both the writing and narration. A.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2014]
