by | Read by Samuel West

Fiction • 6.5 hrs • Unabridged • © 1994

Mary Wesley creates a real atmospheric piece, and Samuel West's clear reading enhances it. The reader shares the main character's pain at the loss of her child and betrayal by her husband and mother. Her "savior," Sylvester Wykes, is also entirely plausible in spite of the melodramatic way in which he and Julia meet and relate. The title is apropos, but the excellent reading makes the potentially sensational story seem logical and believable. Anyone who loves good character development, especially the works of Anita Brookner or Barbara Pym, will appreciate this story. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 95]
