Narrator Patricia Santomasso takes us to Italy in the 1960s. When American actress Silvia finds that the film she was supposed to shoot in Italy is canceled, she and her mother are left almost penniless. Silvia then travels to the castello of her eccentric aunt, Gabriella, once a famous actress, hoping to borrow some money. The castle is chosen as the location for a new horror film, and both Silvia and Gabriella are cast. Santomasso gives each new character an authentic voice and accent. Although her delivery of narrative passages is overly breathy, she's especially strong as the rift between Gabriella and Silvia's mother reveals long buried secrets. Original characters, romance, mysterious noises in a spooky old castle, all read with enthusiasm and intelligence, make this entertaining listening.
