Emilia, a teenaged Romanian gypsy, has been exiled to her room because she has brought such shame to her people. Emilia wiles away the hours by drawing in a secret journal. Listeners will learn about begging, keeping secrets from stern parents, grieving the loss of a baby brother, and the events that led to her imprisonment. Richard Aspel provides a passionate reading, outlining the trials and triumphs of this shy, talented girl. He does well reading various accents and characterizes male characters with distinction while portraying Emilia with a sweet, courageous tone that will keep listeners rooting for her.
