It’s all in the details. Marked by poetic turns of phrase and breathtaking imagery, WITH YOUR CROOKED HEART leaves the listener spellbound by its attention to the minute pieces of life. Reader Janet Maw’s velvety croon is at once innocent and seductive as she guides listeners through the flashbacks that make up the story. A number of stories are told in this novel, some from a second person point of view that Maw shares effortlessly. The lives of Louise, Paul, and Johnnie are confided to the listener, rather than just read. In this audiobook, the characters’ lives blend together crisply, and Maw’s crisp rendition allows the reader to watch. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
