The Jericho Years offers a beautifully woven tapestry of complications, hurts and loves surrounding the Hemingway family of northern England. This two-generation saga examines romantic and parental relationships, personal violation and trauma, and the pain of death and loss. Anne Dover performs the story with sensitive, thoughtful characterizations. She offers the strength and conviction of the men and women with total authority. While she brings lifelike realism to women’s tears of pain and frustration, she resists the temptation to overly dramatize the men, lowering her voice only slightly and using subtle variations of dialect and pace to distinguish them. When you need to lubricate your contact lenses, reach for one of these cassettes--and enjoy. R.P.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
