A COMMON LIFE The Wedding Story

by | Read by Dana Ivey

Fiction • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

This addition to the Mitford "canon" will charm and satisfy the author's readers, who have long asked for the story of the wedding of Father Tim and Cynthia. Dana Ivey reads with warmth and depth, fully capturing the emotional resonance of the story, which details the events of the engagement, wedding, and honeymoon. She voices Father Tim as deep, steady, and sure and Cynthia as feminine, strong, and loving. As for the other Mitford townfolk, Ivey captures the full effect of their personalities without ever falling into caricature. Karon doesn't hesitate to show the weaknesses in her lead characters, and their emotional honesty with one another is compellingly read by Ivey. This short program will leave the listener sorry that Karon has chosen the novella form this time--while at the same time realizing that it is the perfect length for the story. Karon's skill with these characters and Ivey's ability to capture them all perfectly just makes one reluctant to say good-bye. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
