    Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the Last Original Wife among her husband Wesley's wildly successful Atlanta social set. His cronies have all traded in the mothers of their children they promised to love and cherish - till death did them part - for tanned-and-toned young Barbie brides. If losing the social life and close friends she adored wasn't painful enough, a series of setbacks shake Les's world and push her to the edge. She's had enough of playing the good wife to a husband who thinks he's doing her a favor keeping her around. Now, she's going to take some time forherself - in the familiar comforts and stunning beauty of Charleston, her beloved hometown.

    Judith D. Collins says: "Full of Sass and Southern Humor - Loved it!"
    "The worst southern accent I've ever heard"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Original Wife to be better than the print version?

    No I would not because the performance accent was so over done...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Leslie, she was strong and once she made up her mind she did what she needed too.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The Accent was one of the worst southern accents I've ever heard, I'm from the south, and it was distracting from the story


    Any additional comments?

    I loved that the main character's were in their 50's and 60's, it was something as I a woman in my mid 50's could really relate too.
