The three Seagrave sisters face an upheaval that brings their individual problems and family secrets to the fore when their mother shoots their father on the eve of the couple's fortieth wedding anniversary. Goudge's story is somewhat predictable since it's clear that everything will work out despite that dark secret. Nevertheless, the characters are engrossing, and Sandra Burr's ability to express every emotional nuance is perfectly suited to this kind of story. Her tones are truly "bell-like," and her male voices, slightly deeper in tone, sound natural. Both the narrative passages and conversations flow naturally. The talents of author and narrator create a family that seems as real as next-door neighbors. M.A.M. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
