Virginia Woolf's groundbreaking novel about the vacationing Ramsay family and their relationship with their guests and each other is effortlessly voiced by acclaimed British actress Eileen Atkins. As members of the Ramsay family fall away from each other--through normal familial difficulties heightened by the tragedy of war--Atkins does a superb job conveying each character's individual feelings and struggles. In the character of Lily, the painter intrigued by the entire Ramsay family (although mostly by its gentle matriarch), there is a delicate strength that comes through. Atkins has plenty of experience reading the works of Woolf (she also recorded Mrs. Dalloway and A Room of One's Own for Penguin Audiobooks) and is a joy to listen to in this recording, as well.
