by | Read by Harriet Walter

Fiction • 11.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1960

Harriet Walter gives a sensitive and humorous rendition of this tale of a young woman who takes up residence in a sordid room in London after being turned out by her father. Walter does justice to Lynne Reid Banks's delightful and diverse characters--serving up a cast ranging from sweet-but-tough Jane (the unmarried and pregnant heroine), to a West Indian jazz musician, to the cranky landlady with louse-filled beds. Walter's graceful narration perfectly suits the self-revelatory nature of the story and leads gently toward the tale's sweet, if predictable, conclusion. Listeners will surely know they're in the hands of an excellent storyteller. R.B.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 94]
