Lord Dillon, earl of Westcott, trusts his “wise woman” implicitly, only to discover that his ancient advisor is 23-year-old Alyssa, who packs potent magical gifts. Narrator Kirsten Potter gives equal attention to historical detail and magical elements in Duvall’s twelfth-century mash-up. Her steadily pulsing voice makes every sentence meaningful and alluring whether it’s describing scenery or Alyssa’s attempts to keep her true identity hidden. As in the best audiobooks, it’s the joining of Duvall’s carefully constructed romance and Potter’s consummate voices that yields this excellent production. Potter has a special gift for compelling romantic performances, especially in the midst of history or adventure. Alyssa and Dillon are memorable in large part because of her. C.A.
