Isobel Fairfax lost her mother when she was 5. Really lost her. Walking in the woods one day, Eliza simply disappeared, and much of Isobel's young life has been focused on finding out what happened. Susan Jameson performs this dark British comedy/mystery with a brilliant sense of pace and fun. While many of her characterizations are subtle, every less-than-virtuous female carries the same grating voice. Jameson's finest performance is that of the loving, though abused, Mrs. Baxter, whom she embraces with great compassion and tenderness. The surprise conclusion to the intricate plot leaves the listener shaking her head in wonderment and appreciation. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
