Since Joyce Mitchell was widowed five years ago, she's kept herself occupied by running the Sewing Circus, an all-girl group she founded to provide badly needed services to young women at risk, many of whom are single mothers. But some nights, home alone, she has to admit that something is missing. And soon she may not even have the Sewing Circus to fill up her life, as the state legislature has decided not to fund the group.

Feeling defeated and pessimistic, Joyce reluctantly agrees to dinner at the home of her best friend, Sister, and finds not only a perfect meal but a tall, dark stranger named Nate Anderson. His unexpected presence touches a chord in Joyce that she thought her heart had forgotten how to play.

Suddenly, Joyce feels ready to grab a sexy red dress and the life that goes with it . . . if she can keep her girls safe from the forces—useless boyfriends and government agencies—alike against them.

From AudioFile:

When it comes to audiobook novels, most authors should stick to their writing and leave narration to the professionals. What a pleasure to find an exception! Pearl Cleage's warm voice, clear diction, and intelligent pacing highlight this well-crafted abridgment of her bestselling book. It helps that protagonist Joyce Mitchell tells her story in the first person--a story of a young widow who, in the midst of creating a purposeful new life, finds love again. It's a funny, sly tale, given authentic voice by the author. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
