Historical Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Blair Brown's acting talents are brought center stage in her performance of this fictionalized account of the relationship between Loretta Young and Clark Gable, which began during the filming of CALL OF THE WILD in 1935. Woven throughout Young's story is that of Alda Ducci, an imagined personal secretary for the actress. Underlying Brown's animated narration is a subtle emotional tension, and the layered performance highlights the laughter and tears, loves and disappointments in Loretta's and Alda's lives. Many famous people appear in the audiobook, and Brown wisely refrains from impersonations, although each character is given a distinct voice, including a believable accent when appropriate. Listeners will be as caught up in Loretta's lively family and star-crossed romances as they are in Alda's more down-to-earth perspective.
