"Elizabeth Berg's heartwarming performance of her follow-up to THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV centers on the lives of Lucille, Iris, Monica, Abigail, and a host of well-characterized Mason, Missouri, personalities. Berg envelops listeners with companionable warmth as she recounts the women's search for love, validation, and new beginnings in their small town. Iris, desirous of a fresh start after personal disappointments, sounds cautiously optimistic as she establishes herself anew; Monica, a sweet-voiced waitress, struggles with unrequited love; and Abigail and her family, sensitively portrayed, are beset by disturbing news. Their interconnected stories, with whimsical pragmatist and baker extraordinaire Lucille at the hub, illuminate the everyday miracles of friendship. Despite occasional background noise, the production's neighborly atmosphere, hopeful tone, and relatable characters deliver a satisfying listening experience.
