Audio Theater • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

At the turn of the century, an independent young Canadian bears the love child of an itinerant piano demonstrator. After the piano man dies, she marries his social-climbing brother, telling him, only after the nuptials, that the child is a pyromaniac. Thus begins a multigenerational saga of crisis after crisis. Classically trained Colm Feore reads in a tone halfway between that of a funeral oration and a soap-opera announcer. Within the confines of that unctuousness, he is expressive enough and even musical in his timing. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
