Ancient Rome and modern England clash along a remote Essex beach in this gripping tale of romance, history, mystery and the supernatural. Lenska's versatile narration holds the listener spellbound from the first chapter to the last word. Strategically timed use of an echo effect distinguishes between the parallel story lines of past and present. Well-defined characters, mesmerizing plot twists and an excellent delivery combine to make Midnight a compelling offering. The dominant role of teenaged siblings may also attract young listeners.
