by | Read by Elizabeth Henry

Fiction • 15 hrs • Unabridged • © 1990

Cookson's tale focuses on Agnes Conway, a shop girl from Newcastle, England--her strength, independence and support for all those dear to her. The story, which takes place during and after WWI, focuses on family loyalty and the repercussions of marrying outside one's class, as well as the meaning of lifelong friendships. The warmth and expressiveness of Elizabeth Henry's crisp, British tones remain clear, evenly paced throughout her reading. Henry brings alive the language, filled with regionalisms, and handles dialects, genders and moods effortlessly. J.A.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 95]
