Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

When she’s a child, lonely Jane knows she’d be lost without her friend, a man named Michael, whom no one else can see. So she's devastated when he leaves on her ninth birthday, promising her she'll forget him. But she doesn't, ever. When Jane is in her thirties—lonely as ever—they meet again. Ellen Archer gives a delicate shading to this story of unexpected love. She transitions from the childhood Jane to the adult Jane with a subtle change in tone while keeping Jane's essential speech patterns. Archer's portrayal of Jane's powerful mother is just as convincing as those of Jane and Michael. Throughout the book, Archer resists the story's pull toward sentimentality and keeps the performance both thoughtful and entertaining.
