Listening to Kate Reading read this complex, colorful saga about the British Raj is like hearing your governess describe those days of glory and folly while you are safe in your Victorian nursery. Reading reads crisply; her very proper English is easy to understand and pleasing to the ear. She speaks with authority and easily differentiates Eastern characters from Western and males from females. The exciting story features a setting of posh villas, moonlit gardens and heat-drenched battlements, all beautifully described in Reading's cultured, evocative voice. While this is a long audiobook, it will keep lovers of Romance novels and adventure tales transfixed. D.L.G. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
