Saskia Maarleveld's English accent, resonant voice, and clear diction set the stage for this Regency romance. With a charming lilt, Maarleveld brings out the confusion and naïveté of Hannah Rogers, who is torn between two suitors. Her indecision is well contrasted with the unwavering strength in the voice of Marianna Mayfield, Hannah's selfish and deceitful former mistress. Maarleveld's deftly timed transitions and command of the characters' evocative voices, including those of men and women with various accents, keeps the dialogue flowing smoothly and distinguishes between social classes. Pauses and modulations in volume add suspense to some cliff-hanger chapter endings, adding further enticement to keep listening. M.F.
