Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Barry and Carmel Walker, Londoners by way of Antigua, have been married for more than 40 years, but the time has finally come for Barry to choose love over secrets. Told in two voices, this is a provocative contemporary story of a marriage and its unraveling. As Barry, a dapper septuagenarian, Ron Butler charms with his musical tenor. His sense of language and timing is spot on, underlining the rhythm and wordplay of Evaristo's storytelling. In contrast, Carmel's chapters are marked by regret and anger. Despite an uneven accent, Robin Miles offers a convincing, sympathetic portrayal, capturing Carmel's evolving emotions as she reclaims herself. The years fall away from their voices as Barry and Carmel move together toward independence. A.S. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
