Professional reviews

"Novelist Thomas Hardy creates one of the most fully realized characters of literature in the figure of Michael Henchard, the mayor of Casterbridge. "Selling" his wife and child while intoxicated at a county fair, Henchard sets in motion a series of events depicting the turns of fate that fill these lives with bittersweet irony. Showing extraordinary vocal range and emotional truth to dozens of complex characters is acclaimed British actress Jenny Sterlin. Listeners are treated to heartbreaking reversals of fate and accents portrayed with talent and professionalism. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
