Rosamunde Pilcher's writing always feels like a soft chair after a hard day. Her plots and characters offer insights into the human condition with grace and tenderness. Sleeping Tiger, read by Jan Carey, follows a naive heiress on her quest for her father. Carey brings life and spirit to the story, easily portraying its colorful characters with minimal vocal acrobatics. Mischief, fear, frustration, fun and sadness shine through the story without the listener being aware of specific reading technique. Carey's skill and Pilcher's plot blend beautifully here.
