Alexandra Stoddard's emotional groundedness along with the quotations from a wide selection of literary giants give her latest "living well" book an appealing, timeless foundation. It’s full of practical wisdom that sounds like it has been shared for eons by mothers and daughters throughout the world. A lot of her thoughtfulness appears as pointed advice—”Put your life in order” and “Avoid unnecessary distractions”—and it’s with these passages that narrator Laural Merlington sounds most at home. She’s not stern, but her mature voice and assertive tone alert listeners to pay attention and give some thought to the way they manage things like their health, finances, relationships, and intellectual growth. Her urbane performance is a wonderful vehicle for this satisfying reminder of what is beautiful and important in life. T.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
