Narrator Paul Slack's soft tone naturally complements Lawrence's melodic prose. This classic tells the story of the Brangwen family, beginning with Tom Brangwen's marriage to a Polish refugee. The audiobook then follows the life of Brangwen's step-daughter, Anna, in her difficult marriage to one of Tom's nephews, and ends with Anna's daughter, Ursula, in her search for fulfillment. Slack captures Tom's harsh Nottinghamshire brogue as flawlessly as he delivers Lydia's gentle Polish accent. He's particularly compelling in his rendering of Anna as an abrupt and headstrong child. Through his balance of vigorous and gentle cadences, Slack successfully takes the listener on this journey of three generations. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
