Fiction • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

Living comfortably in a seaside town, Helen MacFarquhar, owner of a tiny bookstore, becomes obsessed with an anonymous love letter and a 20-year-old employee with whom she has a love affair. Mary Beth Hurt's performance tends to be overly theatrical at times, and the sound-engineering proves distracting. Nonetheless, with her clear and superb articulation of the various characters, particularly the elderly female Viennese doctor, Hurt effectively delivers this entertaining abridgment. Cathleen Schine writes a modern love story with an unexpected ending. R.E.K./P.S.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
