Warbling birds, accompanied by soft piano music, set the mood and add drama to the story of Beth McGregor, who is fleeing from the torment of an abusive husband. Add a rugged and handsome shipping magnate accused of murder, and a love story soon evolves. The setting is a small village in Nova Scotia; the author's style includes many long, descriptive sentences, similar to those of an introspective novel. Morgan Reinhardt's reading is well enunciated and crisp, but her voice is that of a bright 8-year-old. The childlike quality detracts from the story, particularly the romantic scenes. Reinhardt's voice and tone are better suited to children's stories. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
