Gin Rathbone led a sequestered life with her brother, Jack, until he fell in love with Vera Savage, an eccentric artist 10 years his senior. The story reflects the color of its settings--London, New York, and Honduras, where Jack runs off to with his new wife and where passion is at its highest. The story's intensity, which focuses on several generations of family and the mysterious death of a child, is matched by the ardor of Jennifer Van Dyck's narration. She is elegant in speech and diction. Her compelling energy reflects the dark atmosphere as the listener awaits the unraveling of the truth at the heart of this story. J.P.
