"Therese Plummer perfectly narrates a warm and candid story about love, loss, and healing. Emma used to live the high life, but after her rich husband was discovered to have been involved with fraudulent business dealings, he committed suicide. Now she's returned to her hometown to start over. Her old best friend, Riley, offers Emma a minimum-wage job, and the two explore their falling-out during their college years. At the same time, Emma finds herself in a budding romance with Riley's brother, Adam. The highlight of Plummer's performance is her ability to give unique emotion to each character. She verbally paints a picture of finding light at the end of a long, dark tunnel as Emma tries to hold onto hope and find stability again. G.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
