Narrator Pam Ward perfectly reflects the literary voice of author Lynn Sherr in this in-depth examination of the life of Sally Ride, America's first female astronaut. Ward’s animated voice and varied pace suit the narrative, particularly the passages about Ride’s personal life. Because Sherr and Ride were longtime friends, the text comes off like an extended conversation, and Ward picks up that tone nicely. Vocally, she imparts both the author’s feelings and Ride’s. Pausing before direct quotations, she gives the listener a clear indication of what’s to follow. While she doesn’t try to give other speakers distinctive voices, it’s clear from slight changes that someone other than Sherr or Ride is talking. R.C.G.
