Before date rape was an acknowledged occurrence, in the bad old ’70s, when sexual intercourse between acquaintances was considered consensual, an innocent Christian teenager sufferes that fate after a prom. The long-term effects upon Maryann Mulvaney prove only slightly more severe than upon every member of her loving family. J. Todd Adams’s familiarity of tone immediately brings the listener into a family confidence, as he convincingly assumes the role of Maryann’s young brother, Judd. His characterizations of parents and siblings are portrayed in the way of just such a brother telling a family story. Fitting Irish instrumentals separate chapters. Adams’s mispronunciation of real place names is the only flaw in a touching and compelling performance. R.P.L. 2002 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
