Fiction • 8.1 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

An intense psychological novel is focused on a dysfunctional English family with buried secrets. There is a mesmerizing quality to the story, which inclines the listener to stay with it. Sheila Mitchell narrates with detachment and portrays the various characters expertly. We hear the egocentric self-pity in Martin Trent's whining voice, yet recognize its menace as well. Susan Trent's weakness and sense of hopelessness are deftly communicated. Even the bright, young nannies come alive. This is a stellar performance that lures the listener into staying with a dark story. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
