Unexpected

I don't quite know what I was expecting when I selected this Original, but I was astounded at the quality of the story and the emotion it invoked. I look forward to reading more from this author!

Surprisingly amazing

I had, uh, no expectations for this, but damn. Smooth, expressive voice, interesting story it was the whole package. Only problem; too short.

🎭 First-Rate One Woman Play🎭

I love these Audible Original dramas, and the fact that many of them are now being offered for free. This one isn’t as startlingly original or stellar as Evil Eye, but many listeners will find it a lot more realistic than that play, and more enjoyable (not to mention more hopeful) than Girls and Boys. It’s original for sure, very contemporary, and also very bold in its explorations of themes of marital infidelity and racial issues. Even my husband, not always a fan of drama, got pulled in and couldn’t wait to hear what happened next. Grade: A

Heart wretching

Never thought I would read/listen to such a thing/ genre -- especially as a male. Glad I did. This is a great story of life, love, and family; imperfection, mistakes, and tragedy. Any of us could easily find ourselves in this situation.

Great work

This audible original play written by Chisa Hutchison is powerfully crafted. It’s a great artistic piece.

Now, on to the story. The first half of this made me laugh so hard and snap my fingers in “wooo, yesss” resonance. I loved that first half. The wife was aware, snazzy, strong, and full of esteem.

The second half falls into the typical Black woman model of self-recrimination, blanket forgiveness, self doubt, and acceptance. I did not enjoy seeing the wife take responsibility for her husband and his issues and her daughter and her issues. Can we stop being miles?! Can Black authors stop romanticising poverty, the ghetto, poor speech, and philandering Black men? There isn’t growth in doing so. The self-flagellation is a complete turn off.

The wife’s mistake was trying to raise someone up. I wish she’d realised that. She married someone who wasn’t a fit. What transpired was just the manifestation of such.

I have much more to say, but I’ll still accord that stars for the artistry that is this audible and for the first, hilarious half of this one-woman play.

Also, the narrator, Brenda Pressely, is amazing!

Best Voice Actor Ever

Truly the best, and I've listened to many and returned a few, like "White Trash - The 400 Year Untold History. RUINED the book. But this woman is amazingly talented and while I thought the story was pretty good, she made it alive. Standing and clapping.

Great book!

I loved it ! I was so emotionally wrapped in the story that at the end I teared up.
