Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1976

Sheila Redden casts aside the troubles of her native Belfast and the numbness of a stale marriage when a second honeymoon unexpectedly becomes an erotic affair, which sparks irreversible and profound self-discovery. Reflecting the narrator's Shakespearean training, this passionate and dramatic performance goes beyond simple narration yet never lapses into theatricality. Tomelty's command of accents and her rendering of gender and age are solidly convincing. Her powerful evocation of the characters' explicit and implicit emotions draws her audience deep into the drama. This provocative novel won't fail to move its listeners and, because of its sexual explicitness, is best listened to far from young ears. B.M.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 96]
