Doomed Edie Thompson languishes in an English prison in 1922 for allegedly helping her lover, Freddie, murder her abusive husband. We learn her story via her impassioned letters to Freddie, most never sent. Patricia Gallimore does a magnificent job as Edie, whose moods range from cheerily optimistic to reminiscent to worried to dreamily dysfunctional. The erotic passages are read with the fervor that the text and situations demand. Among the supporting characters, the well-meaning but clueless prison chaplain stands out. You'll cheer for Edie, her go-for-it attitude, and this production. J.B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
