This classic best-selling novel about a man who encounters a woman whose power to destroy is as strong as her power to love evokes Hemingway in its naturalistic portrayal of elemental forces in both nature and humanity. Ellen's beauty was radiant, and Harland had been so struck with her personality and the strength of her character that he knew he could never leave her. When he found that she returned his adoration, he could marry her with joy, bothered just momentarily by a strange premonition. It was only later, when the premonition became a horrifying reality that he realized the glowing loveliness of the woman he had married was the true face of evil.

Hard to think about
Great novel finally brought to audio
Chilling tale of a woman obsessed. Ellen Berent meets Richard Harland on a train and it's all downhill from there. Well-crafted tale of a bloodless woman who will stop at nothing to satisfy her desires. Narrator Mike Dennis brings this long novel to life with his no-nonsense style and sharp characterizations. Highly recommended.
