Elle Newlands, Katy Townsend, and Lincoln Hoppe lead an ensemble that delivers a poignant and irresistible epistolary romance. In 1912, at the outset of WWI, Scots poet Elspeth Dunn receives a fan letter from a college student in America, so beginning a correspondence that culminates in an affair. When a bomb hits Elspeth's home in 1940, a trove of letters is unearthed. Elspeth disappears the following day, leaving behind her daughter, Margaret, and one mysterious letter. As Elspeth and Margaret, Newlands and Townsend stand out with their warm Scots accents and ease with Gaelic, while Hoppe's earnest soft voice often betrays a mischievous smile. Listeners will revel in the intimacy of the performances. A perfect fit for audio. A.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2013]
