by Anna Quindlen | Read by Carrington MacDuffie

Carrington MacDuffie’s rich voice is a perfect match for Quindlen’s exquisite story about 60-year-old Rebecca Winter, a once famous photographer who moves to a remote country cottage, hoping to find herself. MacDuffie captures Rebecca’s melancholy at leaving her decadent New York City lifestyle behind, her strength as she discovers how being alone can heal, and her dry humor as she accepts the situations and people that come her way—including a roofer named Jim Bates and a stray dog named Jack. The story is both touching and humorous as complex themes are balanced by a sweet love story. MacDuffie’s natural style and subtle character voices add even more charm to the story, keeping the listener engaged from start to finish. M.M.G.
