Hardship and mistreatment were circumstances well known to Martha Brown, a historical figure of the 1800s upon whom this story is based. In a society not kind to women, she struggles and works to build (and rebuild) a life for herself. Martha is continuously haunted by a recurring dream that seems to foreshadow the story's surprising and tragic outcome. Phyllida Nash provides an admirable narrative with full and well-developed characterizations of Martha, the many who contribute to her hardships, and the few who give her joy. Nash conveys an empathy for Martha that allows her vulnerablity to carry through to the very end. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
