By Rosamunde Pilcher

From Publishers Weekly
Pilcher is understood for her hot, compassionate stories of English relatives lifestyles. yet this 1967 novella, on hand on audio for the 1st time, isn't really considered one of her higher efforts. An orphan pointed out by means of her maternal grandmother, 20-year-old Selena has regularly puzzled approximately her never-mentioned father. Her simply hyperlink to him is a photo, and while she spots, at the again of a e-book jacket, an writer picture with an uncanny resemblance to her father, she impetuously takes to the air for Spain to discover him. Selena's severe na vet turns into frustrating after some time, and suspenseful and comedian moments appear pressured and drawn out. Narrator Carey excels at voicing the numerous quarrels during this ebook, simply switching from Selena's high-pitched, protesting voice to an exasperated male tone. regrettably, she has no facility for accents. She's wonderful for the Brits: Selena, her fianc , the writer Selena suspects is her father. yet a lot of the motion occurs on an island off the coast of Spain, and Carey's Spanish accessory for the aiding characters will never be credible. An American personality, too, sounds whatever yet American. (May)
