Restless Suzanna Peacock has always hoped that her next venture--her marriage or her high living in London or, now, her new shop in the town where she grew up--would bring her perfect fulfillment. Her tribulations are spoken by Judith Boyd, who turns this novel into a stellar dramatic reading. We expect a narrator to deliver different voices and sound ranges, and sometimes a tone that describes the places on the pages, but this narrator lets you know at the beginning that you have entered a special arena. You know when she announces each chapter that she is figuratively drawing back a stage curtain and inviting you to enter the novel with her. This is the way excellence sounds. J.P.
