Having lost her mother at childbirth, Emma Litton has spent all of her life struggling to guarantee a place in her artist father's life. After spending much of her adult life in Paris as a nanny, she returns to England to settle into her father's studio at the Cornish seaside. Sian Thomas, a magnificent Emma, has a perfunctory ability to shift character portrayals. Whether personifying Emma's witty and talented half-brother Cristo; her deep and introspective father; or her admirer, the handsome art gallery owner, Thomas exudes warmth and creates vivid brush stokes of bold color. Soothing yet never boring, Thomas is a skilled narrator. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
