John Bedford Lloyd doesn't just read the new Nicholas Evans wolf novel, he brings it to life without once hitting a false note. Lloyd doesn't send his voice comically high for the women or drop it absurdly for the cattlemen they marry and then grow to despise, yet we always know who's speaking. This crystal clear production draws us deep into the intricate plot as did its enormously successful predecessor, The Horse Whisperer. This escapist novel dramatizes the conflicts between men and wild animals, and between men and women, who are sometimes also wild. Will the wolf kill the baby boy? Will the rancher kill the baby wolf? Will the beautiful Helen Ross find love? B.H.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
