In a soft, intriguing voice, Emilia Fox matches her lovely British accent to this old-fashioned romance. First published in 1948, this story is a timeless tale of unrequited first love and sibling jealousy. It is full of elegance and lace juxtaposed with a life of poverty. Fox deftly portrays the two sisters who live in a run-down castle in an old-English countryside. The courting of the two sisters by two brothers leads to misunderstanding and confusion. Fox reads the story, which is the younger sister's journal, with flair, lending an air of grace and a mix of adolescent feelings that match the poignant text.
