Larry Watson is a master at capturing interesting corners of America. In ORCHARD, he moves east from his earlier book, MONTANA 1948, to Wisconsin, where Sonja has been transplanted from Norway into a world of art and apples. After a devastating personal loss, Sonja loses--or finds?--herself as a nude model for world-renowned painter Ned Weaver, a situation that drives her husband, a down-to-earth orchard owner, to jealous extremes. George Guidall performs this quiet drama with a warm raspiness that brings each character to life. His gentle portrayal of Watson's understated, intense descriptions makes this a captivating listen. The suspense builds with every cassette without losing the most important part of the story: the story itself. L.B.F.
