Rosalyn Landor's musical, upper-middle-class British accent is a pleasure to listen to. Her expressive voice is perfect for the first-person narration of Amy Crane, a new mother facing the stress of sleepless nights and dirty diapers; the low self-esteem of weight gain and fear that her significant other is cheating on her; and the conflict of whether to return to work. Landor perfectly captures Amy's anxiety, self-denigration, hope and excitement at every turn. She also clearly differentiates between the character's voices and easily portrays an American friend of Amy's and a West Indian suitor of Amy's mother. This is a mommy lit novel that translates seamlessly to the audio medium. Simultaneous release with the Hyperion hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 16). (Jan.)
