Debra enjoyed Pictures at an Exhibition
AudioFile Magazine's Earphones Award Winner Pictures at an Exhibition by Sara Houghteling is beautifully narrated by Mark Bramhall who has a unique ability to interpret each character's voice with unusual clarity. At times heartbreaking, fascinating and beyond our comprehension to imagine, Houghteling weaves a tale of prominent Parisian art dealer Daniel Berenzon whose fine collection has been looted while under German occupation in the early 1940's. The story continues after liberation when Daniel's son Max, in his attempt to recoup the vanished treasures, uncovers secrets that shake his already devastated world. Houghteling's descriptions of the Parisian landscape in the 1940's will capture your imagination and make you feel as though you are really there.
