PW Reviews 2009 May #4

Maggi-Med Reed's rendering of 86-year-old Henny Comfort and 17-year-old Nit Spindle, who forge an unlikely friendship in the middle of the Great Depression, is lively-and especially memorable when, over lengthy quilting sessions, Henny tells the girl stories about their neighbors in the little gold-mining town of Middle Swan, Colo. As narrator, however, Reed is uneven, sometimes even monotonous, giving little verve to Dallas's vivid descriptions of landscapes or weather that alternate with Henny's histories. But the bonds between old folks and young ones are a beloved theme in recent literature (e.g., The Senator's Wife, Tuesdays with Morrie) and listeners who enjoy this theme will be able to overlook any weak points and relish this audio. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 6). (Apr.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
