Bestselling author Pearl Cleage returns to the site of her Oprah pick novel, What Looks Like Crazy On an Ordinary Day, to affirm life's precious wonder once again.

Since Joyce Mitchell was widowed five years ago, she's kept herself mercifully busy by running The Sewing Circus, an all-female group she founded to provide badly needed services to single mothers and other young women at risk. But some nights, home alone, she knows something is missing. And if the state legislature cuts off funding, she'll soon not even have The Sewing Circus to fill up her life. Then one night, at dinner at the home of her best friend, Sister, Joyce finds a perfect meal and a perfect man: tall, dark Nate Anderson, whose unexpected presence touches a chord in Joyce's heart that she thought it 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 somehow keep her girls safe from the dark forces aligning 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
