Fiction • 18.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

Hillary Huber narrates this lovely story in the same manner it's written--with a grave, unvarnished steadiness. The character, Lydia Rowe, takes us on a coming-of-age journey, jumping from one time period to the next. Huber's exacting pitch hits a cerebral ebb and flow. At times, there's meandering philosophical banter between the protagonist and her circle of friends. The characters are unique and clearly differentiated when Huber speaks. Her pace is consistent, as if she's carefully painting this story for the ear. She hits the right pitch of sadness, sarcasm, or even indifference when speaking of circumstances like Lydia's marriage or the death of loved ones. Huber's narration is sure to give one pause for contemplation on the purpose of life. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
