Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Taylor McAddon rescues a single mother and her small child after a one-car accident during a raging North Carolina storm. But in the end it's she who rescues Taylor from the demons that have possessed him since the death of his own father years before. Mary Beth Hurt and John Belford Lloyd alternate segments of the story, with their parts set off by passages of folk guitar music. Hurt's Taylor is somewhat muddy, but she nails Denise and her small son, Kyle, offering a sensitive portrayal of the young mother and her challenged child. Lloyd presents a much more convincing Taylor, right up to the sobbing scene near the end, during which he sounds embarrassed by the syrupy text. The package comes across as good entertainment, predictability of plot notwithstanding. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
