Kate, a New York debutante, and Joe, a brilliant pilot and ambitious businessman, come to life in a stormy romance. Reading with powerful masculine tones and inflections, Ron McLarty draws the listener close and communicates the intricate and shifting relationship, begun between Kate and Joe at her coming-out ball during the war in 1940. Later, he skillfully depicts Kate's anguish-laden voice as she demands Joe fulfill his promise of marriage, only to be ignored. Told in flashback, the predictable story fails to enthrall the listener with suspense despite McLarty's excellent reading. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
