The Miss Margarets, known as Miss Peggy, Dr. Maggie, and Miss Li'l Bit, are an odd threesome, whose alliance seems like a given in their Southern town--but how it formed is, of course, a story. There are secrets in the town's past, some dark and ancient wrongs, and hidden deeds that seem less Gothic than morally complex in Linda Stephens's thoughtful and elegant performance. She makes the Miss Margarets vivid and sympathetic, and is equally skillful with young Laurel's grudge against them and with the handsome reporter from New York whose arrival prods awake the sleeping dogs. All the players in this intriguing story are fully formed and believable in Stephens's graceful reading. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
