Noelle Tremaston has led a charmed life, daughter of the incomparable Desiree, the darling of Drury Lane. She has grown up amid a flurry of opening nights and elegant parties, basking in the fatherly affection of her unconventional mother's devoted beaux. But when kind-hearted Desiree opens her home to Lisa Fennell, and adoring fan and ambitious ingenue, Noelle's carefree existence is changed forever. Desiree falls prey to a mysterious illness that forces her to cede her place on the stage to Lisa and eventually takes her life. Devastated by the death of her beloved mother, Noelle turns for solace to the man she loves, but the revelation of a dark secret threatens to separate them forever. As Noelle tries to rebuild her shattered life, she meets many people who are not as they seem. Mystery, madness and murder stalk her - until a startling and ironic twist of fate brings her tantalizingly close to the happiness she thought was lost forever.

The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.From AudioFile:
Holt's tale of deception and its consequences comes alive through Judy Bennett's narration. Set in Victorian England, the story is a first-person account of Noelle Tremaston's life, loves and tragedies. Bennett's drama training is evident in her fine interpretation of the characters, especially the nuances of their changing emotions. Clarity and consistency remain strong throughout the lengthy, well-paced narration. Bennett's emotive tones richly enhance the story, as does the audio format. J.A.H.
