As the wealthy Lockwood family flees London during the Blitz of WWII, they decide to take in an evacuee. Twelve-year-old Cecily chooses May Bright to join them at remote Heron Hall. Narrator Jennifer Vuletic is sublime; the two girls are vastly different, and hearing their voices adds tremendously to listener interest. She also captures 14-year-old Jeremy Lockwood’s feeling of helplessness toward the distant war. Through their voices, we can almost SEE their cold mother and charming but disappointing father. Every night Uncle Peregrine (and Vuletic) splendidly regales the children with tales about nearby Snow Castle. The lyrical story illustrates how everyone in society is affected by war and the misuse of power. An epilogue allows listeners to follow the characters long after the war. S.G.B.
