Libby Moran is an incessant worrier who is sure she is a bad wife and mother. When she dreams about her husband having an affair, she argues with him about it; later that day, he dies in an auto accident. The aftermath leaves the family in dire financial straits. After selling their home and most of their belongings, Libby and the two kids move in with her hypercritical mother. Just when Libby is at the end of her rope, a letter arrives from her Aunt Jean offering a place to live and a small salary to help run her goat farm and cheese business. Taking a chance for the first time, Libby moves them to the farm and a new life. Narrator Amy Rubinate does a credible job, differentiating characters by variations in pitch and accents.
VERDICT Recommend to patrons who enjoy the works of Jennifer Weiner and Luanne Rice.
