After fifty years of marriage to Rose, Conrad is left a widower, mourning his loss and deliberating his future. His despair and adjustment portage him to a new life. Jeremy Gage recites Conrad's thoughts, plaiting past and present events with decorous and mature diction. Conrad gains a new vitality through a somewhat mystical event that introduces us to the remainder of the cast. Gage's female voice inclines to sound contrived and less genuine. Contemplative and vital, the story and its character are nevertheless sustained. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
