When Miranda Wells is summoned by her distant cousin Nicholas Van Ryn to live with his family at his luxurious residence in Hudson, New York, she thinks her dreams of romance will come true. The land of the Dutch settlers is not home to narrator Bonnie Hurren, and she gives acceptable, if not colloquial, pronunciation to the names of the many towns in the area. Otherwise, her entire reading is masterful--offering extremely exact characters. This control gives the Gothic novel all the shades of eeriness the author means us to hear.
