Chevalier's follow-up to her wonderful GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING traces an improbable friendship set in an interesting time, Edwardian London. Two dissimilar families with abutting cemetery plots become involved with each other when they become neighbors in life as well as in the hereafter. Chevalier's research (Victorian clothing and burial customs, the women's suffrage movement) is on display, the writing is fine, and this production is marvelous. An assortment of actors takes the first-person voices that tell the story, such as it is: interesting without being convincing. I wish this audio volume included a cast list, since the actors are the best thing about it. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
