Description

Barbara Taylor Bradford is one of the best-selling authors in the world, having sold more than 60 million copies of her novels—several of which were adapted into television miniseries. She is beloved for her strong female heroines and her romantic, page-turning plots. Seventeen-year-old Katie Byrne and her friends Denise and Carly share fantasies of making it on Broadway. But when Denise is killed and Carly left in a coma after a savage attack, Katie must reach for the stars on her own. Many years later, an acclaimed Broadway performance ignites Katie's career. And when she falls deeply in love, it seems like icing on the cake. But the crime against her friends has never been solved, and the haunting memories may be too much to overcome. Bradford showcases all the elements that have made her fiction enormously popular while spinning a powerful tale of the courage needed to overcome devastating tragedy. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat triumphantly conveys the emotional extremes of Katie's quest.

      • content: Katie Byrne's two best friends are brutally attacked, and one of them is killed. The tragedy stalls Katie's career and emotional development, although she's determined to give up on neither. Barbara Rosenblat sounds like at least a dozen different people as she breezes through the Irish, Yorkshire, New York, and Connecticut vocalizations of the book's characters. Her narrative passages are delivered in flawless midwestern U.S., and her timing throughout retains its customary perfection, drawing the listener in despite the predictability of the plot. No matter who the writer may be or what the story involves, a Rosenblat performance brings out all the good points, and adds a few more for good measure. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine

        February 26, 2001

        Long celebrated as a bestselling chronicler of women's lives, Bradford adds a mystery twist to her latest tale of romantic suspense. At 17, Katie Byrne and her lifelong best friends, Denise and Carly, share a passion to act on Broadway and plan to move from their mid-Connecticut town to New York after high school graduation. One day, Katie's early departure from their daily after-school acting rehearsals in Denise's uncle's barn saves her from a brutal attack on the other girls. With Denise dead and Carly in a coma, Katie fears she'll be the next victim, and for a time, acting loses its appeal. Ten years later, the murderer is yet to be found, Carly remains in a coma and Katie has picked up the pieces of her life and moved to London, studying in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. When she's offered the part of Emily Brontë in a play bound for Broadway, she realizes it's the chance of a lifetime. But she's apprehensive about returning to face the ghosts of her past and hesitates to fulfill her childhood dream without her best friends to share it. Bradford sets a quick pace by introducing tough police detective Mac MacDonald, aka Mac the Knife, and by showing how Katie and her family dealing with the tragedy. The second half falls off, however, reverting mainly to inner dialogues and Katie's doubts about her ability to perform on stage. A too convenient, totally unmotivated solution to the murder caps the curiously thin narrative, in which Bradford never fully renders her characters. This is a fast but shallow read, perhaps satisfying to Bradford's fans but not a significant milestone in her career.

      • content: Seventeen-year-old aspiring actresses Katie Byrne and her two girlfriends are sure that it will be a quick step from their Connecticut barn-theater to Broadway. But when her girlfriends fall victim to an unknown rapist-murderer, the stage suddenly loses its glow. Ten years later, fame beckons again. Will the tragic past loose its stranglehold and allow her to use her thespian talent? Kate Reading believably peoples the story with Irish, British, and Americans of all ages and both genders. With the addition of her lilts and twangs, the sometimes predictable dialogue of Bradford's cast jumps off the page--alive with fresh drama for the listener. E.V. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
