Master storyteller Archer crafts a mesmerizing tale of power and the pursuit of the American dream. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat's deep, rich voice perfectly portrays the strength, grace, intelligence and self-confidence of the heroine, Florentyna Rosnovski Kane. Rosenblat shows outstanding skill in fully creating each of the many characters, leaving any listener longing to hear more. She successfully renders both foreign and American regional accents: the Bostonian accents of Mrs. Kane, the heavily accented Polish tones of Abel Rosnovski and the no-nonsense British lilt of Miss Treadgold. Rosenblat captures the essence and moods of the characters, both male and female; her clarity and pace remaining consistent throughout. Rosenblat's superlative performance sets the standard for exceptional quality. J.A.H. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 95]
