People magazine editor and New York Times best-selling biographer Andersen (Barbra: The Way She Is) here focuses on one of the most enduring love stories of our time--that of actor Christopher Reeve and Dana, his wife and mother to their three children. Following a catastrophic 1995 equestrian accident that left him paralyzed, Reeve, a real-life superman, battled back, and together the couple advocated for disabled people everywhere. (Christopher died of a heart attack in 2004; Dana, from lung cancer two years later.) Narrator/actor Edward Herrmann, a Reeve family friend, brings poignancy and warmth to the reading. Book title and disc number announcements at each disc's start and end make it easy for users to stay oriented. Recommended for libraries with collections of celebrity bios.
