Elly and Joe Remington marry and settle in Joe’s rural hometown, but Elly can’t forget her aristocratic background and tries to put everyone in their place, much to the chagrin of her husband. She rapidly becomes disliked by the town and her husband’s friends. Can she fix the mess she’s made? Elizabeth Henry reads this tale in a slow, terse voice and creates the characters with shrill intonation and a panoply of accents. Henry’s characterization of Elly fits her perfectly, making the listener dislike her as much as the townspeople in the story. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
