Professional reviews

"Emily Maxwell, widowed for almost a decade and nearing 80, has her routine down to a science: Tuesday breakfast with her sister-in-law; early service on Sunday; and long days with her dog, the radio, and library books. Narrator Andrea Gallo flawlessly complements author O'Nan's outstanding character study as she portrays all of Emily's facets--from the critical Emily who assesses post-funeral-service meals to the no-nonsense Emily who puts her affairs in order and the private Emily who coos to her dog. Gallo's unaffected style accentuates the emotional complexities of a vibrant older woman who honors family traditions and reflects on her youth yet boldly holds fast to a future-oriented outlook and the possibility of new experiences. This is a refreshing and surprisingly uplifting look at aging middle-class women in America. C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
