Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

Harry Caldecote, a librarian in modern-day England, looks forward to the simple pleasures of retirement. Instead he becomes mired in providing strength and stability for relatives and friends: his widowed sister; his black sheep son; his alcoholic niece; his cousin's wife, Bunty. Harry has his work cut out for him! Case's vocal skills are excellent, clearly enhancing the book with unusually effective gender and character differentiation and true accents. The recording is technically superior, with good high and low frequency ranges. J.D.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 93]
