Narrator Ann Marie Lee brings just the right energy to this multigenerational story of strong women forging their identities in small-town Minnesota. Nora, Patty Jane, and Ione survive through fearlessness, a little luck, and a whole lot of love. While her pacing and intonations mirror the pluck of the heroines, Lee is equally good at slowing down the tempo to deliver scenes marked by uncertainty and tragedy. All the characters, men and women, are easily distinguishable and allowed their moments of charm, including the youngest, triplets who steal much of the limelight through Lee's ebullience and playful tone. Listeners familiar with PATTY JANE'S HOUSE OF CURL will be delighted to revisit familiar friends, while new listeners will quickly feel right at home.
