In the first installment of the Lost Lord series, narrator Kate Rawson spins the tale of Mariah Clarke, mistress of an estate her father won in a card game. To discourage an unwanted suitor, Mariah claims that a man she rescues, who has lost his memory, is her husband. Little does she know that the man is the Duke of Ashton. Rawson's portrayals of the various characters are subtle and not always consistent. Her best efforts are showcased in her portrayal of Lady Agnes, the formidable headmistress of Westerfield Academy. However, even Rawson’s efforts cannot save a story filled with too many twists that add little to the story. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
