The House of Velvet and Glass

Katherine Howe, read by Heather Corrigan. Hyperion AudioBooks, unabridged, 14 CDs, l6.5 hrs., $44.99 ISBN 978-1-4013-2626-5
Set primarily in Boston in 1915, Howe’s novel follows Sibyl Allston as she attempts to come to terms with the death of her parents and rebuild her life. To this end, she enlists the help a psychic medium. But when her brother is thrown out of Harvard and becomes involved with an inappropriate woman, Sibyl turns to psychology professor for help—only to discover a deeper mystery. Heather Corrigan turns in competent if uninspired narration in this audio edition. She reads in a soothing, lilting voice—her narration crisp and well-paced—but her performance lacks nuance and the voices she creates for the book’s characters could be more distinct. A Voice hardcover. (Apr.)
