The august and tragic military tradition of the Duncastle family epitomizes British patriotism. With the loss of successive males in battle, the family is a metaphor for the inexorable decline of the Empire in the face of a rapidly modernizing twentieth century. A formidable figure, Matilda Duncastle is tenacious in her belief in service to country. Her commanding presence is brought to life in this brilliant and compelling narration. Cooper reigns supreme in her control of tone, emphasis, accent and vocal quality. She adds depth as she distinguishes the narrative present from flashbacks, ensuring that the past resonates irresistibly upon character and audience alike. As the last words trail away, the reader remains enthralled and hungry for more. B.M.W. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
