After her grandmother, Georgia, dies, Catherine Hubbard goes to live in her house, where she discovers Georgia's letters and diaries. However, to say this is merely the story of two women would be shortsighted. Miller's writing is spare and polished. She illuminates the details of life. We taste the flavor of ripe fruit and the crystalline crunch of sugar on bread and butter on Sunday after church. She brings into sharp focus the differences between what we say and what we mean, the worlds below our words. Judith Ivey's performance is as complex as a Mozart flute quartet. Her ear is tuned to Georgia's Downeast cadences in the Maine of 1919, and to Cath's contemporary voice, a continent and almost a century away. The future and the past come together in this celebration of the simplicity of human experience. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
