When Kate Reading wraps her lush, cultured tones around Stephanie Barron’s exacting period diction, the listener is transported to Jane Austen’s Hampshire, July 1809. Jane is recovering from the death of her beloved Lord Trowbridge. Trowbridge left Jane a trunk filled with his private papers, but before she can begin his biography, a body is found in the cellar of her cottage. Everyone is suspect, from lords to laborers. In her eighth performance of a Jane Austen mystery, Reading offers another example of remarkable control, allowing each character to speak in her own voice. Fans will savor this carefully crafted, beautifully read Regency tale. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
