Rosemary Davis reads Nancy Mitford's 1931 novel as if it's a family story. Her familiarity with the characters and events draws the reader into this story of an English artist who meets his future bride while attending a house party in Scotland. Davis's English accent is totally lucid and effective; she moves effortlessly into the recitation of a lengthy Scottish ballad with wonderful clarity. The recitation is one of the many high points in this rounded tale of romance and English class discord. Davis's ability to make serious points without pomposity and to convey Mitford's humor make listening to this tale a joy. D.P.D. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 94]
