Another sensitive piece by Eric that really packs a wallop. At first, I found her pieces frivolous, but through the years, her writing really grew and developed an extraordinary depth. I wonder if there is any way to read a collection....Actually, it would be interesting to see the collections of any of these writers.

This one had a happy ending, well, for CBSRMT anyway. But I still cried a little. Very intense story and well acted. Sad, moving and will have you thinking about it afterwards. The sound aint the best and you can barely understand Tammy Grimes' narration but well worth the trouble.

I have to admit, Elspeth Eric's work is either growing on me, or she got better over the years. This episode is not a mystery at all. It is a romance. Grab your lover, poor some wine, snuggle on the couch, or better in the hot tub and play this one. It is entertaining and heartwrenching. 4 stars. Have fun lovers!
