Grace Eversleigh, long-suffering companion to the Dowager Duchess of Wyndham, falls in love with the highwayman who robs the coach carrying her and the duchess. The duchess is convinced that the robber is her long-lost grandson, and the true Duke of Wyndham. Grace is not the only one suffering--the listener suffers right along with her. Kate Reading valiantly tries to breathe life into this hackneyed plot and its simpering, whining characters. The British upper-crust delivery she gives to her portrayals of the aristocratic characters is the only thing memorable about this forgettable story. Quinn, who usually can be counted on for a sure hit, simply has delivered a miss. Skip this. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
