To call A PARTISAN'S DAUGHTER simply a love story might discourage the wider interest it deserves. It is, rather, a meditation on the search for love in a weary world—graphic, profound, affecting, yet so plainly written and transparently narrated that the characters live and breathe and feel, and persist in memory. The book’s language and structure are ideally suited to audio. The work is made up entirely of stories within stories, smaller in scope and far more intimate than the author’s well-known bestseller, CORELLI'S MANDOLIN Spoken by a man and a woman, alternating between the two fine voices of Sian Thomas and Jeff Rawle, the work strikes the listener as a spontaneous outpouring of two lives. One can’t help becoming emotionally involved. Too soon over, its subtle mysteries laid bare, this haunting recording invites the listener to start again. If only the characters could. J.L.B.
