Judith Ivey has received two Tony® and two Drama Desk awards; she starred in the television series Down Home and has appeared in seventy-five stage productions and twenty films.From AudioFile:
A young Southern woman marries into an aristocratic Boston family and spends her summers at a vacation community on the Maine coast. Heavy-handed abridgment reduces this novel to an outline which denies the listener any character development. Judith Ivey offers stereotypical dialects which are discordant to a New Englander's ear. In her interpretation the Down East Mainers speak like thugs in raspy voices. Her presentation of a Boston accent is phonetically erratic and also spoken in gruff tones. The color and flavor of Maine are missing from this tasteless rendition. J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
