The author's emotional memoir of family, nation, and the Olympic experience is written with great feeling, but the listener is not immediately connected to the drama. Wanda McCaddon's confident tone, consistent pace, and crisp pronunciation of long Greek names are helpful. She presents a strong female voice, which is significant in telling this story of an assertive woman like the writer. As McCaddon moves us through the narrative at a swift rate, she keeps the lengthy sentences and dense personal histories of family members from weighing down the story. Her clipped British accent also works well for the formidable Angelopoulos. M.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
