A man suffering from severe stress is prescribed rest and relaxation by his physician. The doctor recommends a villa in Spain whose owners have fallen upon difficult financial times and are willing to take in a border to supplement their income. The only condition is that he is not to strike up any intimate relationship under any circumstances with the owners of the estate. Once settled in his room he is captivated by a painting of a lovely woman in his room. This ancestor of the current residents bears a striking resemblance to the current occupants. The man cannot leave well enough alone and embarks on a fact finding mission to uncover the past of this family, and, in the process, falls in love with one of them.

One of the more literary episodes I've heard so far. Very well produced with excellent sound quality.

Nice adaptation of a RLS classic. The book was scarier!!!

A good listen again as most (if not all) of the Robert Louis Stevenson adaptations are. I have gotten all of his works to read, but have yet to read all of them (I have read a few in the past). Isn't it nice when you hear something that it makes you want to read the original book/story? It's not very often that you see something that makes you want to read the original story (only one time for me - The Princess Bride, and it was a great book for me, too).
