Noted talk show host Skye Audsley is going to Farmingdale to do a
show; 'A Day In The Life', about the deplorable living conditions.
However, uppermost in his mind is finding a live-in care giver
for his Grandmother. Arriving in Farmigndale, Skye meets and
interviews the Hatchet family, and he is immediately impressed
with the love and care Cornelia has for them. The sudden death of
Henry Hatchet was a staggering blow, but it was the catalyst
Cornelia needed to finally leave Farmingdale. Skye, back in town
for a follow-up story, hears about the death or Mr. Hatchet and he
has the perfect solution for both parties. Cornelia and her sisters
can be thelive-in care givers for his Grandmother. Cornelia is
approaching her middle thirties, but she is a woman who has an
insatiable curiosity about the world beyond her hometown. She has
not forgotten her dreams; in fact, her dreams are what kept her
sane. She accepts Skye's offer and starts to envision herself with
her degree in her hand and Skye at her side. She has survived her
stagnant life by living vicariously, so fantasizing about Skye
The premise of the story is excellent, and though I could not really
embrace the characters, the real strength of this particular story
lives in Ms. Griffin's ability to tug at our family emotions, as well
as make us stop and ask ourselves if we are really able to give up our
personal goals for the sake of family? This is a real underdog story
but she did not allow the character to wallow in self-pity. As with
Ms. Griffith's other works, At Long Last Love and A Love of Her Own;
the stronger story line read like a Mainstream work to me.
(Really a 3.5)
