NECESSARY MADNESS

by | Read by Sheila Hart

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

American Gloria Burgess loses her British husband to leukemia and finds herself and her young son alone in London. Sheila Hart displays unique insight into the pain Gloria experiences over her husband's death and the tumultuous relationship she has with her mother. After hearing Hart capture Bill and Gloria's relationship through a warm, caring courtship and marriage, the listener is driven to tears as she describes Bill's illness and its effect on Gloria and their son. In addition, she amplifies Gloria's character through her relationship with her father, a physicist, which Hart interprets as deeply intellectual, yet unusually dependent. By the end, Hart has discovered each character's spirit and seamlessly reveals their loving and difficult relationships. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
