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.

"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"
