Set in Florida in the early 1800's, this is a tale of the war between the Seminole and Osceola Indians and the white settlers. White man, Jarrett, and Tara, his wife, try to keep the peace with the Indians. But peace isn't forthcoming as Tara's past continues to haunt and terrify her until the startling conclusion in the cypress swamps. Juliet Mills reads the story in a light British accent. She has an evident lisp in the first half of the story, which distracts the listener. Also, the accents, particularly the French ones, aren't consistent throughout the story. In addition, the tone of Mills' voice doesn't always match the actions described, causing the listener to wonder how she feels about what she's reading. Despite all this, Graham's romantic historical fiction provides an interesting view of life on the Florida peninsula. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
