A fascinating study of the life and work of Mary Hiester Reid, a turn-of-the-century still life painter, FLOWER DIARY promises listeners an audio biography full of personality and unique insights. Molly Peacock, a poet, personalizes this biography by inserting interludes of her own connections to the artist and research process without overshadowing the interesting biographical details of Reid. As narrator, Alicia Payne clearly renders the images of both the artist's life and her paintings. Payne has an even cadence throughout her reading, and her genuine excitement for the subject shines through. Listeners will hear her smiling as she emphasizes certain details. Payne's narration offers an enjoyable way to experience this biography, and she captures the personal touch that Peacock has added to her study.
