Using her lovely and soothing voice, Amy Rubinate narrates this sweet, romantic glimpse back to a time gone by when life was slower and more formal and romantic relationships developed rather than just happened. Cullen McNamara, a cotton farmer's son, goes to Chicago in 1893 to display his invention, an automatic sprinkler system, at the World's Fair. Suffering from hearing loss, he develops a friendship that turns to love for the lovely and reserved Della Wentworth, who teaches the deaf at a demonstration at the fair. Rubinate's selection of voices for each character is spot-on. She gives a coarse sound to Cullen's illiterate girl back home, a precise and sweet tone to Della, and a deep, strong, and patient voice to Cullen. Her portrayals of various businessmen of the time are also pitch-perfect. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
