A superb cast of four narrators delivers this honest, angst-ridden, sometimes humorous portrait of one family's life. Barb and John, married for 50 years, hide secrets and resentments. Juliet, a successful architect, is her mother's perfect child. Sadie, an artist/teacher living in New York City, is the apple of her father's eye. Then, John has a massive stroke, and the family's perfect facade collapses. Xe Sands bristles as smart-alecky Sadie, who uproots her life to care for her father. Laurel Merlington's Barb is angry and sharp-tongued, contemplating life as a caregiver for a man she no longer loves. Amy Rubinate is convincing as Juliet, who is living "the perfect life" yet suffers from panic attacks. Graham Winton is spot-on portraying John, who is confined to his mind and trying desperately to remember. Riveting listening. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
