Jamie Heinlen's narration of this novel is a fine example of audiobooks at their best. She masterfully captures both the characters' personalities and their shifting emotions. The conversations of chronic pain sufferer, Alan, and his wife, Jane, are whiny and tense. But their tone changes markedly when a new pair comes to the university where they're employed. Alan brightens as he succumbs to the spell of visiting writer and Southern siren Delia. Jane's encounters with Delia's husband, Henry, ease the strain in her voice, while shaking her view of the world. Henry, in turn, moves from demanding to docile. Only Delia remains the same, unmoved by the upheaval she precipitates. Bravo to Heinlen's outstanding narration! J.J.B.
