"With emotional intensity and studied elegance, Rosalyn Landor guides listeners to 1917, when England's aristocracy is facing the end of innocence and British military forces are being dealt their bloodiest hand against the Germans. Landor's voice and manner are ideal choices to tell the story of Bess Crawford, a nurse tending the critically wounded in France. One of Crawford's patients, a burn victim, has kept his wife's photograph as a beloved talisman. So Crawford is surprised to see the woman from the photo with another man at a London train station. Crawford later learns that within hours of seeing the woman at the train station, she was murdered. Driven by curiosity and principle, Bess is compelled to discover who murdered the wife. S.E.S.
