    New York in 1947 glows with postwar energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, returns home to run the family business. In a single, magical encounter on the Staten Island ferry, the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale falls for him instantly but too late to prevent her engagement to a much older man. Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in postwar America’s Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, and the haunts of gangsters.

    Leslie says: "Great Insomnia Listening"
    "Wonderful story - terrible reader"

    What did you like best about In Sunlight and in Shadow? What did you like least?

    Character development, story line, evocations of NYC at a particular time.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Runnette’s performances?

    Never! I finally went to the library and borrowed the hard copy to read as I could not stand the sing-song quality of his voice, What a disservice to the terrific work of a very talented writer.
