This fascinating story of a long-term romance, interwoven with the story of the creation of the alternating current power grid, is performed with professionalism and verve by Terence Aselford. Exotic European accents evolve over the course of this tale of inventor Toma Pekocevic and the love of his life, Harriet. Toma's invention, a water-powered turbine, revolutionizes electric generation. Aselford is especially effective at portraying the anguish experienced by Toma as he loses Harriet to a wealthy politician who realizes the genius of Toma's invention and pulls strings to bring power to the people. For readers not interested in a behind-the-scenes peek at the science of power production, there are two juicy love triangles. R.O. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
