Listeners may wish to sip a glass of Riesling while they listen to this, as the mellow feeling produced by the wine will nicely complement the narrator's drawling voice. When a tornado rips through Lucie Montgomery's vineyard in Atoka, Virginia, it leaves an unearthed grave in its wake. This sets tongues wagging, and Lucie becomes determined to protect her father's name. Narrator Christine Marshall's voicing of Lucie is clear and consistent. While she is less successful with a couple of the supporting characters, she does a great job with the young male undergraduate student, the old village gossip, and Lucie' s brother when he has imbibed a little too much. These last two are particularly amusing. A.E.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
