Sadie Montgomery’s career as a portrait artist is on the upswing until emergency brain surgery leaves her with what she hopes is temporary face-blindness. Suddenly, every face becomes a puzzle, even the faces of those she loves. Learning to accept her new condition while pursuing her career and taking care of family issues and her aging dog, Sadie falls in love with not one but two men at the worst possible time. As she adjusts to these new challenges, she learns to trust herself and look to the future with hope. Center’s (The Bodyguard) latest is a romance full of tenderness and humor. Patti Murin narrates the struggling yet still optimistic Sadie while respectfully acknowledging the hurt and confusion that her condition has caused. Murin’s lively performance and varied character voices make for an engaging and fun listen. Additionally, audiences will likely appreciate the note at the end about prosopagnosia, or face blindness, and how to learn more.
VERDICT Center’s signature wit and humor will delight current fans and those just discovering her. Share with those who like Abby Jimenez and Christina Lauren.
