Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts

Laura Benedict, , read by Emily Durante. . Brilliance Audio, $29.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4233-3440-8

When three women, friends since their tumultuous youth, find their lives unraveling, they are assisted by a mysterious stranger who arrives in their respective lives at just the right time. But who is he, where did he come from, and what exactly are his intentions? Emily Durante delivers a solid reading that features three separate and well-defined female performances that lend a realistic underpinning to an otherwise otherworldly story. Durante’s only flaw is that as good as the three protagonists are, her renditions of supporting characters are at times clichéd and obvious. A Ballantine hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 27). (Jan.)
