The love story of Edward Daugherty, a turn-of-the-century Albany playwright who reaches beyond his immigrant roots, and his wife Katrina, aristocratic, independent, and beautiful, raises one of literature's eternal questions: Can the love of two good people transcend class and corruption? This unabridged recording has the feel of an abridgment; long periods of time are skipped, and we're left to wonder about the feelings and motives of crucial characters. Michael Prichard's matter-of-fact narration does nothing to help unravel the convoluted time scheme or clarify the confusing switches in narrative voice and point of view. In the end, both the story and its telling are unsatisfying. J.E.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
