Crescendo music accompanies startling gunshots as the audio opens--but that's as good as it gets. The drama of a budding romance between an attorney and recent divorcée, interspersed with social bigotry, racial hate crimes, and a trial, is a thin cover for the underlying sermonizing herein. Narrator Rob Lamont has a deep Southern voice, but its tedious pitch tends to put the listener to sleep. Thinly veiled moralizing is boring and fails to communicate the message of salvation the author seems to intend. Climactic music breaks are attention-catching, but they can't save this poorly done story. This is one audio to leave on the shelf. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
