William DeMeritt narrates Jonathan Evison’s mosaic of a novel, which ties together the 19th-century ancestors of 21st-century characters who are headed for a train disaster. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss this story with fascinating characters in two distinct time periods. DeMeritt masterfully paces the intertwining stories with a keen sense of drama, smoothly takes on the accents, and adeptly voices the remarkable characters.
