Charlotte Mortimer lives in a repressed Victorian household with her parents, making no progress with her life until a boarder, Peter Fisher, appears. His passion is to replace gaslights with electricity, and, in doing so, life takes off for them both. Kelly Hunter reads this novel with infectious ebullience. She brings such clarity and joie de vivre to every chapter and event that it's hard to stop listening. Her diction is perfect, and there's continual energy in her reading. This magical narration makes it hard to get on with one's own life. J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
