The relationship of four lovers and their beliefs are examined against the brutal backdrop of a small mining town. Maureen O'Brien splendidly creates the tone and tension of each character, dramatically accentuating the novel's theme of the destructive nature of relationships. The narration proves equally expressive, and O'Brien's voice has an entrancing lilt which complements each phrase. Her sensitive, fluid performance reflects the evolving mood of the work. The reading transports the listener to the world of the text with graceful dignity which unlocks the power of this enlightened work. S.L.D. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
