Coral Glynn 

Peter Cameron, read by Simon Prebble. Dreamscape Media, unabridged, six CDs, 7 hrs., $59.99 ISBN 978-1-61120-717-0
Set during the 1950s in a dark, dreary “mausoleum” of a mansion, Cameron’s novel follows the titular Coral Glynn as she arrives at Hart House to nurse the terminally ill Mrs. Hart, who lives with her son, Maj. Clement Hart, and their rigid housekeeper. But soon disaster strikes, and Coral and Clement find their relationship changing in unexpected ways. Simon Prebble provides charming, unassuming narration in this captivating audio edition. He also lends the characters a variety of spot-on voices and accents. He provides Clement—a war-worn, physically damaged, middle-aged man—with a brusque yet kind voice, while also rendering lower-class dialects for servants and shopkeepers. The result is a captivating audiobook that will keep listeners engaged until the very end. A Farrar, Straus and Giroux hardcover. (Mar.)
