"BURNT MOUNTAIN engages the listener with suspense, vivid and charming descriptions, and characters to care about. Kate Reading imbues each character with a distinctive accent, timbre, and pitch. Her skillful portrayals of the principal players keep the listener wondering about the story's outcome all the way to the end. This dramatic Southern saga follows a privileged Atlanta family fraught with love, lust, betrayal, and loss. Layers of dark secrets are revealed as Thayer Wentworth grows up and moves beyond her careful upbringing to marry an Irish professor, who is inexorably drawn into Burnt Mountain's web of deceit. Told in a series of flashbacks, the novel has time lines that are confusing and period references that are flawed. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
