Brontë's lengthy account of Lucy Snowe's teaching career in a French school for girls is the perfect vehicle for Karen Cass. She shows the full range of her talents in vocalizing French and English speakers of all ages. She delivers French dialogue with ease and is convincing in both female and male roles. Her most touching vocalization is that of a motherless child who enters Lucy's life. Cass paints an endearing portrait of the frightened and fragile little girl, who resurfaces later to play a pivotal role in Lucy's chances for marital bliss. Cass’s delightful portrayals of key events and characters help the listener peek into the world of VILLETTE. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
