Literary Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

With the author's characteristic detachment, this novel tells of a shallow, young adulteress whose bacteriologist husband takes her to a remote area of China ravaged by a cholera epidemic, where their propinquity and peril in battling the health crisis leads to her spiritual awakening. Sophie Ward reads primly and accurately, with little investment or enthusiasm. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
