In the post-Civil War era, dedicated second-generation Marine Zachary O'Hara is given the responsibility of preserving the Corps by convincing the Secretary of the Navy of its importance to the future of American defense. Love enters the story when O'Hara's life becomes entwined with that of the independent Amanda Kerr Blanton. And conflict ensues when both O'Hara's superiors and her father object to the relationship. John Bedford Lloyd reads this melodrama with a bold, clear voice that works for both action and romance. The resolution will not be unexpected, but the strong reading will keep listeners involved until the end. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
