Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Dark, mysterious Jamaica spreads out before the listener with this family saga of distrust and betrayal, which moves from the Caribbean across the Atlantic to Scotland and London, then back again over twenty years. Anna Bentinck proves a masterful reader as she deftly handles the multiple points of view of the novel’s various narrators. Bentinck is excellent as a cockney teenaged street urchin or a tight-lipped parson with secrets to hide. She especially shines when assuming the personas of the Jamaican natives with their patois-accented English and sinister traditions. This love story engulfing three generations of a shattered family proves compelling from beginning to end as Bentinck creates perfect pictures with her voice.
