Anita Shreve is the critically acclaimed author of twelve books, including The Pilot's Wife, which was a selection of Oprah's Book Club, and The Weight of Water, which was a finalist for England's Orange prize. She lives in Massachusetts.From AudioFile:
With too many threads creating an uneven tapestry, Shreve's latest lacks the vitality of her previous novels. Linda Emond's performance is adequate, but with so many subplots to keep straight it's easy for the listener to get lost. Musical segues aid transitions as we are bounced from an inn in the Berkshire Mountains in December of 2001, back to 1974, when a classmate drowned just a week before graduation from the prestigious Kidd Academy, and back even further to WWI, when Halifax was devastated by a blast that left many survivors blind. Too many threads . . . too many story lines to really care. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
