At the age of 90 in 2015, Minnesotan Miss Norma was widowed and given a cancer diagnosis in the same week. Forgoing surgery and chemotherapy in favor of joining her retired son and his wife on an RV road trip around the U.S., Miss Norma became a celebrity when national TV shows picked up her story. Christopher Grove's dry narration of Tim Bauerschmidt's chapters is adequate but lacks personality--there is little sense of the free spirit and whimsy apparent in the son's story about his mom's surprising adventures. Nan McNamara lends a bit more warmth and charm to Ramie's Liddle's portions of the journal, especially in portraying Miss Norma's huge heart and quiet wisdom. This is a straightforward narration of a truly delightful memoir. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
