Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1970

Separated from her second husband, Clare Lyall tries to come to terms with her life, only to lose her best friend to death and her lover to irreconcilable differences. Clare tells her story in long, pensive monologues, which Huth reads in her strong, quiet voice. Huth's demeanor varies little, even when emotional scenes occur between the characters. Rather understated, Huth controls the cadence of the words, as well as the continuous tone of her voice. Close listening reveals that her style of reading matches the overall tone of the story. Her best part, old Mrs. Fox, allows her to use a contrasting tone of voice, as well as a more positive attitude. An interesting vocal interpretation by the story's author. Note: It's a terribly depressing story, glum throughout, offering zero hope. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
