Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Frances Tomelty

Fiction • 7.4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1981

Eileen Hughes, an Irish shopgirl, has been taken under the wing of her wealthy employers, the McAuleys, who treat her to a London holiday "à trois." During the trip Eileen discovers the dark side of life as she becomes the innocent victim of the McAuleys' complicated relationship. With her thick, Irish accent, Tomelty gives a delightful rendering, which gives both texture and depth to the tale. Her skill with accents and character portrayals is evident throughout: a young American who enters the story sounds very male, very American, and--like the rest of the characters--very believable. There is nothing rote about this performance which is highly recommended. R.B.F. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 94]
