Jamie Glover's narration of Sebastian Faulks's critically acclaimed novel is mesmerizingly good. Once begun, you will want to do nothing but listen to this romantic adventure set during WWII. In 1942, Scottish Charlotte Gray, who is in London to aid the war effort, is in love with a British airman. Soon, the airman disappears over France, and Charlotte herself is sent into southern France to help the French Resistance. Glover paces his reading beautifully, often keeping listeners on the edge of their seats. In addition, he handles the large international cast remarkably--Gray's Scottish voice, the French accents, the varieties of English accents--all faultless. Only the one American character is flawed--but no matter, she disappears quickly. A grand production. A.C.S.
