Fiction • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1961

Bernadette Dunne breathes new life into this 1961 Wallace Stegner novel, reminiscent of ANNA KARENINA. Her warm and refined voice draws out the character of Sabrina Castro, and her assorted friends and family, as she struggles with the toll her romantic affair has taken on herself, her marriage, and her other relationships. Dunne perfectly delivers both the refined voices of Sabrina and her family and the less-cultured speech of supporting characters. Along with her characterizations, Dunne’s rich delivery of the narrative makes this long listen tolerable. At more than 16 hours, the production drags at times but is solidly enhanced by Dunne’s full timbre and pleasant cadence. R.Z.R. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
