Emotional tones are well developed in the performance of narrator Brooke Sanford. When 30-year-old Essie Speclemeyer decides she is quickly reaching the age of spinsterhood, she determines that she must find a husband. Her methods land her in all kinds of trouble, some humorous and some devastating. The year is 1894, a time when young ladies should not act in such impulsive ways. Essie learns some hard lessons and finds out the importance of a life surrendered to God. Sanford's enthusiastic narration portrays Essie in a perfectly modulated flirtatious tone of voice. Each character is well defined and alive, and the fast-moving story has an unexpected ending. N.L. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
