Fiction • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

At one point this novel makes reference to Robert James Waller's THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY. This homage is no accident: It seems Patterson has created his own version of that novel. Sugary and clichéd, the plot unfolds predictably and without depth. Katie's lover leaves her suddenly, his only explanation arriving in the form of a diary dedicated to a child. An odd love triangle comes to light as the mysterious Suzanne's diary is read. Becky Ann Baker's reading is appropriate: Suzanne sounds saintly, although her rendering of Katie's Southern accent seems exaggerated at times. However, the book is easy to listen to and perfect for mindless entertainment. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
