Two love stories are intertwined in The Ghost. In the present are Charles, an architect with a love of history, and Francesca, a shy art historian. Both have been emotionally wounded by their spouses and are seeking solace. Their lives are influenced by the ghost of Sarah Ferguson, who escaped an abusive husband in England in 1789 and met her heart's love in New England. Joe Grifasi brings each character to life with a quiet voice and steady reading. His voice disappears into the background as Charlie reads Sarah's diaries and the past comes alive. Although the ghost never speaks in her own voice, her diaries and presence, portrayed in gentle words, heal Charlie and Francesca. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
