The impending sale of a large tract of Adirondack property brings out the best and the worst in a variety of locals--owners, businessmen eager for profits, environmentalists. Trying to keep everyone in line is Police Chief Russ, who is fighting his own feelings for Episcopalian priest Claire. Suzanne Toren takes advantage of every opportunity to individualize these characters. A special challenge is the property owner whose vocal chords were burned, but there are others, such as Claire's self-righteous supervising cleric and a socially ambitious second wife. The pace goes from slow burn to a truly explosive climax; Toren's narration does likewise. This is a treat. J.B.G.
