Rosamunde Pilcher's writing always feels like a soft chair after a hard day. Her plots and characters offer insights into the human condition with grace and tenderness. In The Day of the Storm Pilcher revisits the lives of some of her earlier characters, artist Grenville Bayliss and his family, this time from the point of view of the artist's granddaughter. As in any good mystery/romance, she survives dastardly deeds and manipulations to find true love in the arms of the man she hated on sight in chapter one. Predictable plot aside, the book is fine entertainment, thanks to Hunter's competent narration. She resists the temptation to over-vocalize, allowing her crisp diction and Pilcher's clean writing to shine. R.P.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
