Mystery & Suspense • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1978

When beautiful television star Jemima Shore retreats to a remote Scottish island for a holiday, she becomes embroiled in a family feud going back to the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie. The story has a cast of vivid, eccentric characters in an untamed setting. The reading by actress Patricia Hodge is exceptional. Her British English is very clear and expressive. She does a masterful job of delineating characters by using her great vocal range--all the while keeping the words of the text understandable to American listeners. This is audiobook listening at its best with the author's well-drawn characters brought to life by an expert narrator. B.V. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 93]
