    Highly Recommend

    I loved this book (CD)I've just discovered Dorothea Benton Frank. The story line was very good. Ms. Weston does a wonderful job with the southern accents, it brings back memories of those wonderful southern voices I heard as a child.

    warm Christmas story plus recipes

    There's little that will get you into the holiday spirit as quickly as this warm story of a family at Christmas time. The audio opens with a carol sung by a choir and then eases into the voice of Theodora, a Charleston matriarch. Her narrative is winningly rendered by Celia Weston, an American stage, screen, and television actress who is well known for her character roles. Noted for her performances as Southern women, she brings a slight South Carolina accent to this reading and a mature voice, quite appropriate for a 93-year-old woman. Very pleasant and authentic listening! Thoedora, who describes herself as an 'old nanny goat' but one who would prefer to be referred to as a 'stylish dowager.' has managed to gather her family for Christmas. Now, she may be a nonagenarian but she's a feisty one even though her bones creak 'like loose floorboards' when she wakes up in the morning. It takes only a minute for her to realize that this celebration will be nothing at all like the ones she remembers - peaceful, loving, happy as everyone enjoyed the cooking and care of housekeeper, Pearl. While Theodora certainly realized that the world had dramatically changed since her youth, she was distressed to see her family at odds and apparently unaware of the true meaning of Christmas. But, what in the world, if anything could she do to bring them all together? This audio edition includes 14 tempting recipes that you can print. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke
