About this title


A celebrity scholar in a small village tears her nephews from their immediate family and raises them in an atmosphere of cruelty, and when a grown nephew returns to the village twenty years later, he sees that his aunt has come full circle.

From AudioFile:

Along with achieving national fame as a biographer, Lydia Perceval becomes famous as a corpse. This complex mystery, intricately crafted by Barnard, becomes an intriguing performance as Davidson expertly brings the characters to life and deftly enacts the storyline. He uses a variety of voices and British accents to instill each character with a specific personality and individuality. Smooth shifts in speech patterns and inflections provide flawless transitions between characters. The wide variation of emotions is adeptly managed without confusing the listener. Davidson's superb reading complements Barnard's story while providing a high standard of performance and guaranteed listening pleasure. P.A.J.
