Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Lucy Carlton grew up pampered and depressed in 1880s' New York, and adulthood offers no escape from her velvet prison--that is, until a German neurologist opens her psyche, as well as her heart, to the "real" Lucy buried in social propriety. Kathe Mazur shifts between the first-person narrations of Lucy and her doctor, following a story of unconventional treatment and its repercussions. Mazur's voice expresses Lucy's awakening as she learns the joys of sexual fulfillment but never betrays the character's proper upbringing. Mazur employs no dialect for Victor Seth, the German Jewish doctor responsible for the change in Lucy. This makes Seth all the more believable as a man and a professional--we are listening to what he says, rather than the "otherness" in his accent. R.P.L.
