Fans of Krentz's work will flock to the final volume in her Eclipse Bay trilogy. The romantic pair at the center of the story is made up of "hard-hearted Harte," the single father of a precocious child, and Octavia Brightwell, owner of the town's gallery and the center of the town's gossip and circle of eccentrics. Mary Peiffer relies on the text for all emotion, humor, and drama, since her narrative style features precise diction and emphasizes every syllable. This can take some adjusting on the part of the listener but will be gratefully received by anyone who has difficulty deciphering accents. E.J.F.
