Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Catherine Texier has taken a page from her family history to create a portrait of her great-grandmother, Victorine, as she leaves her husband and children to follow her lover to Indochina. Jurian Hughes runs with this lyrical novel and weaves a spell around the couple as they build a new life, all while conveying Victorine's anguish at leaving behind her family. Hughes's airy voice communicates clearly the struggles and passions the couple feel, the hardships they endure, and the conflicted feelings at the heart of the story. From the stifling household Victorine leaves behind to the equally stifling heat of Southeast Asia, Hughes is at home reading this Victorian love story. H.L.S.
