Little June Tolliver changes her life forever the day she lies hides behind the big Lonesome Pine to observe a handsome visitor. That man, Jack Hale, becomes her champion as he transforms her from a backwater Appalachian waif to a high-society lady. But while her tastes and expectations change, her heart remains in the Cumberland Gap. This reading expertly presents more than two dozen male and female voices that include both tough, backcountry accents and cultured, Eastern inflections. Villers's pace is perfect for this potentially tedious tale; when it was over, I wanted a sequel immediately. J.E.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 95]
