LIFESAVING LESSONS Notes from an Accidental Mother

by | Read by Linda Greenlaw

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Authornarrator Linda Greenlaw was comfortable with her solitary life on a small Maine island. Although she had wanted to be a mother, her career as a commercial fisherman and lobster trapper made it difficult to pursue marriage and family. Greenlaw does a fine job delivering her most recent memoir about how her world changed when she agreed to give a troubled local teen a temporary home. Greenlaw may not have a professional narrator's polish, but her performance behind the mike is smooth, and her genuine emotions win listeners' empathy as they learn the story of how she unexpectedly decided to pursue legal guardianship of her charge. The result was three tumultuous years of adjusting to motherhood; helping a skittish, damaged girl; and forging a family. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
