Children • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

Through Catherine's diary, Karen Cushman gives a view of life in medieval England, including its fleas, crude manners, squalor and the special treat of clean bed linen. Kate Maberly is an excellent choice to read this daybyday journal, though hearing each day announced is somewhat monotonous. Young Maberly transports the listener with her clipped, Continental voice just right for Catherine's age and setting. The language isn't forced or contrived, and Maberly's spry energy brings Catherine's thoughts and challenges alive for listeners. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
