A multigenerational novel tracks the romantic adventures of children of privilege in the Roaring ‘20s. Anne Dover reads this mammoth novel with such expertise that we forget how trivial a work we are listening to. Dover is one of few narrators who can skillfully portray both English and American characters. She makes our heroine, the “Golden Butterfly” of the title, an enchanting and engaging character, and describes the story’s balls, seductions, betrayals, and domestic cruelty with style. Listeners will look forward to the other two books in Dover’s trilogy, Daughters of a Granite Land. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
