An innocent young girl, a handsome man with a dark past, a rambling estate with ghosts and locked doors--there's no question that what we've got is Gothic romance. Jacqueline King's reading is somewhat problematic. Her narrative voice is adequate despite occasional lapses in phrasing and emphasis. Frequently, however, her dialogue is over the top. The wispy, breathy voice of the young heroine, the patently evil tones of her husband and the ludicrous accent of the would-be lover all seem to imply that she is reading the novel as a parody.
