Emmeline Lambert is a French countrywoman married to a famous illusionist. When her husband is sought by Napoleon III to overwhelm Arab leaders with his magic, her life goes from the simplicity of the country to the court of royalty to the deserts of Algeria. When Lindsay Duncan reads, the facts of history and the fictional characters become so real that one believes the tape to be a factual account. She is perfect in diction, in language and in her understanding of what this well-written story really means. J.P.
