Justine Eyre's spirited reading is as lively as Kate Addison's theater company, which is stuck in her former lover Brandon Balfour's quirky British village. While Kate keeps Brandon's mooncalf nephew at arm's length, the village looks on as the couple reignites their romance. Eyre sets a brisk pace that keeps listeners' attention and is attentive to Maxwell's sense of the dramatic. Kate's voice, with its appealing mid-range timbre, is steeped in indignation at Balfour's youthful desertion. Balfour's is deeper, with a rough edge, that ranges from mild in conversations with his whinging sister, the dowager duchess, to hard-edged when dealing with unreasonable theater crowds. As several calamities test the lovers' tenuous connection, Eyre navigates Maxwell's comedy of errors with memorable secondary characters whom listeners will want to hear in future installments.
