9780743270557: Trophy House: A Novel

Dannie Faber has lots of reasons to feel blessed. A children's book illustrator, she shares a loving marriage with Tom, a professor, with whom she divides her time between one of Boston's finest suburbs and a beloved beach house in Truro, on Cape Cod. They have equally fortunate friends and a daughter, Beth, who has found success in Manhattan as a magazine editor. Suddenly Dannie's fairy tale comes to an end. A rich newcomer to Truro builds a hideous "trophy house" down the beach from the Fabers', irritating the town's inhabitants before he's even moved in and setting off shock waves that erupt in a nasty racial incident. With an unfortunate turn of events, Dannie's life begins to unravel. Beth loses her boyfriend and quits her job, her best friend falls in love with the owner of the "trophy" house, and Dannie's own marriage falls apart.

Celeste Lawson is an Earphones Award winner and Audie Award nominee. She is the recording studio director for the Talking Books Program at the Library of Congress' National Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. She was a dancer and an actor before finding her niche in the intriguing, challenging, and extremely satisfying world of narration. In Silver Spring, Maryland, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and cat, she practices yoga and continues to dance. Celeste has also recorded for Blackstone Audio under the name C. M. Hebert.

From AudioFile:

Cape Cod is shown at its best as the background for Dannie Faber's life as an illustrator of children's books. The quality of daylight and the winds and the silence after the summer people leave are her euphoria. Then someone builds a monster trophy house down the road, and Dannie's happiness starts falling away. Celeste Lawson reads as if she is telling her own story. Her manner is reserved, as if she is holding back the desire to let her feelings fly, and that restraint allows the listeners to judge the characters for themselves, making the listening experience a very personal time.
