    From the author of the beloved novel Three Junes comes a rich and commanding story about the accidents, both grand and small, that determine our choices in love and marriage. Greenie Duquette, openhearted yet stubborn, devotes most of her passionate attention to her Greenwich Village bakery and her four-year-old son, George. Her husband, Alan, seems to have fallen into a midlife depression, while Walter, a traditional gay man who has become her closest professional ally, is nursing a broken heart.

    Overall

    I was looking forward to this one; I read Three Junes (as a book-book, not an audiobook) and really liked it. But this narrator drove me crazy! She seemed to want to make every word seem special and wondrous, with this enthusiastic intonation that would have fit right in on Romper Room but got very tiresome for me after a few hours of listening. Her Scottish accent was very peculiar, and I *cringed* every time she spoke in the voice of Walter, the main gay character. Over all, I think the book itself wasn't as good as Three Junes either, but it was hard for me to tell for sure given how annoying I found the delivery.
