Classics • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1880

James's classic tale of a plain but potentially wealthy girl caught between two manipulative men comes brilliantly to life in this well-abridged production. William Hope ably captures the cruel indifference of Catherine's father, the greedy charm of her suitor, Morris, and the unassertive but gradually steely tones of Catherine herself. Only after her father's death can she summon the inner strength to cast off the one man who has touched her romantically. As a period piece and an absorbing story, this is--and has always been--a winner. Among other abridged titles in the HighBridge Classics series: VANITY FAIR, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY and James's PORTRAIT OF A LADY. J.B.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
