Willa Cather’s first novel is a love story set in sophisticated Boston and London drawing-rooms. A successful bridge builder, Bartley Alexander, is torn between two women: his beloved, charming wife and the beautiful Irish actress who had been his first love who reappears to enchant and disrupt his middle age. Narrated by Flo Gibson. AVAILABLE ON BOTH CASSETTE AND CD OR AS A DOWNLOAD THROUGH AUDIBLE.COM.
Listener ReviewsFlo Gibson’s rich, well-modulated voice brings depth and texture to the story. Hearing her is like sitting in the parlor listening to a well-loved and dramatically gifted aunt read a story. Her phrasing and timing are superb, and it’s clear she understands and appreciates Cather’s story. So will the listener.
