With her lovely voice and cultivated British accent, you feel you could listen to Gerri Halligan forever. Halligan so fully embodies Heyman's seventeenth-century heroine that it sometimes surprises you to find yourself surrounded by modern conveniences. The novel, reminiscent of LORD OF THE FLIES, follows a young Dutch woman, Judith Bastiaansz, who accompanies her family on a voyage to a new life in Australia. But when crew and passengers are shipwrecked on a deserted tropical island, all are confronted by new norms of behavior, power, complicity, and desire. As shocking as the events are that unfold, what may linger longest is the sound of Halligan's musical, nuanced performance. M.O. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
