In the 1840s, Nancy MacLeod's ancestors immigrated from Raasay, a little island off Scotland, where people lovingly accepted that some members of the family were gifted with "the second sight," allowing them to foretell events and be visited by the dead. Although this audiobook doesn't come with a copy of the MacLeod ancestral tree, Pamela Donald's lilting brogue makes each character easy to trace. As the story recounts the bitterness of the first winter in Nova Scotia, the heroism of WWII bomber crews, and the stories of lost children, wartime deaths, and new love, Donald's narration maintains its character differentiation. The novel's cast even seems to age in character. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
