Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

THE CHILDREN'S HOUR is set in a beautiful and well-loved family seaside home--a beautiful Devon sanctuary for adult sisters Nest and Mina. As the novel opens, the two senior women must adjust their lives a bit when their older sister comes to stay with them--and they must adjust even more when powerful memories come with her. June Barrie offers a warm performance; her voice is a velvety purr and her delivery appropriately lively. The setting, brimming with gardens and seascapes, comes alive with Willett's descriptions and Barrie's attention to the beauty of words. THE CHILDREN'S HOUR offers a pleasant escape to the beach and a thoughtful exploration of the meaning of family. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
