Review of Memorial

Dmae Roberts shares the last few years of her mother's life in a story that is sweet and touching without being the slightest bit sappy or overly-sentimental. There are touches of humor, a slow and steady dramatic tension that seems just right, and an intriguing ending. Dmae's tone and style are so natural your listeners will forget that they're listening to the radio. Mother's Day is an obvious tie-in, but anyone who ever had a mother would appreciate the story at any time.
