Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Articulately written and precisely voiced by Laural Merlington, this is a delight and a wonderful treat for the ears…Although the introduction is voiced by Westheimer herself, the rest of the audiobook is narrated by Merlington. Her mature, appropriately paced narration provides context by nature of its sensitivity…Thankfully, Merlington doesn’t attempt to imitate the inimitable Westheimer—yet she quite skillfully weaves the words into rhythms that are unmistakably Westheimer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
