Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Unable to accept or reciprocate her French husband's devotion, a German WWII survivor comes to life in the arms of her Hungarian Jewish lover. Richard Aspel's performance reveals both the simplicity and complexity of this novel's plot and characters. Aspel's performance and the story unfold slowly, like the layers of an onion; text and narration reveal the compelling events and tender emotions. Aspel transitions from character to storyteller with a proficiency that both draws the listener in and provides a wide-angle perspective. The story's ending offers a surprise, but no resolution--a disappointing reminder that many plots in real life end exactly the same way.
