Barker, a master of atmosphere, meets Rees, a master of vocal drama. Together they present some highly memorable scenes. Rachel, a young wife of the powerful Geary clan, uncovers a fantastic history of the Geary and Barbarossa families. Moving from Virginia plantations, to high-society New York, to a Hawaiian retreat, listeners encounter characters who are also time travelers. Rees's exquisite feel for dialect colors each player with distinction. In a single scene he captures the mysterious storyteller, Galilee, who speaks with syncopated Caribbean rhythm, a nineteenth century aristocrat, and the ingenuous Rachel. Rees vividly draws each character in this tantalizing tale and elegantly projects Barker's metaphysical eroticism. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
