With a voice full of exquisite detail and laced with charm, Patricia Conolly narrates this enchanting tale. Annika, a foundling who has grown up in a happy home, falls into the hands of villainous characters. She yearns for her biological mother, but when her mother does show up, she is not all that Annika wished for. Still, Annika is determined to make the best of the situation. Conolly reads with just the right accent and creates the perfect mood for the story. In particular, she helps make the setting of Vienna into a rich backdrop for the story. Her eloquence is delightful, and a perfect complement to an unforgettable story. D.L.M.
