About the Author:

Elizabeth Spencer was born in Mississippi in 1921. Her first book, Fire in the Morning, was published in 1948, but it was the publication of The Light in the Piazza in 1960 that brought her widespread acclaim, becoming a New York Times bestseller and the basis of a major motion picture. Her writing is distinguished by fine craftsmanship and intense plotting that reveals the essential nature of the characters. She is a five-time recipient of the O. Henry Award for short fiction. She lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.



Hillary Huber is one of the most successful voice talents in Los Angeles. Recent books read for Blackstone Audio include Him, Her, Him Again, the End of Him by Patricia Marx, A Field of Darkness by Cornelia Read, and A Map of Glass by Jane Urquhart.

From AudioFile:

Margaret Johnson is a well-heeled American Southern lady traveling in Tuscany with her beautiful grown daughter. Though an accident has frozen Clara's mental age at about 10, a sweet Italian boy falls in love with her artless innocence, and his family follows suit. What happens next is both understandable and a little queasy-making--if these nice Italians with their patriarchal ways don't notice that Clara is actually a child, should her mother spoil her chance at married happiness by telling them? Hilary Huber peoples the story with a sympathetic international cast of characters and keeps the morally murky proceedings somehow as light as the title. The soufflé falls if you think too hard about it, but if you can resist, this production is a delight. B.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
