In the dark desperation of a London winter's night, Kitty Miller throws herself off a bridge. Carole Boyd takes listeners to a time and place exotic in poverty and hopelessness--the reeking streets of the Victorian East End. As a reluctantly rescued Kitty becomes reabsorbed into that milieu, a wealth of characters and voices pours from Boyd: Tibs, a "bride" of the streets and her pimp, Jack; an entrepreneur from the northern mining districts and his partner; and the elegant doctor whose offers of help allure the struggling quartet. Their adventures and the magic in Boyd's voice sweep them toward the wonder of the approaching millennium. S.B.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
