Fiction • 6 hrs. 50 min. • Unabridged • © 1992

Residents of the English village of Fairacre are twittering with rumors of a large housing development which may be built on their rolling downs. Anne Rosenfeld presents the back-chat and gossip among the village characters with a precise English soprano that should add verbal dimension to Miss Read's cozy prose. Though the timbre of Rosenfeld's voice captures the atmosphere of the story, her uniformly high pitch is difficult to follow. The vocal changes of characters are so subtle as to cause confusion about who is talking. Some fans of Miss Read's light touch may be disappointed by the unrelieved shrillness of this presentation.
