Andrea Gallo instructively narrates the intriguing true story of two women of Amherst, Massachusetts, Mabel Loomis Todd and her daughter, Millicent Todd Bingham, who brought Emily Dickinson's literary genius to light after her death. Gallo's clear, steady assertiveness conveys an unfolding audio docudrama filled with surprises about who and what shaped the poet, whom the world has come to love and admire. Gallo's voice takes the listener back in time. Her tone captures this romantic era, especially when narrating the traumatic affairs of these women and their determination to share Emily's poetic brilliance. Gallo sometimes adopts a maternal tone--as if one must learn a sort of lesson from Dobrow's biography, but, more important, there is a stern persevering boldness that entertains the listening ear.
