The story of ten-year-old Mary Lennox whose parents and nanny die in India during an epidemic is familiar to many. Here it is retold in impeccable style by Royal Shakespeare Company Associate Juliet Stevenson. With clarity of voice, Stevenson creates the characters of sour Mary, warm-hearted Martha Sowerby and her brother Dickon, temperamental Colin, and the complete cast of Misselthwaite Manor. The style is consistent throughout. Highlights from the story are neatly woven into the narrative. The audio tale remains true to the book, especially expressing the essence of love-deprived, spoiled children. P.S.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 92]
