When Samantha Whipple begins her studies at Oxford University, she is prepared for the inevitable attention. Not only is she the last descendant of the Brontë family but also it's thought, wrongly, that her late father left her a treasure-trove of literary memorabilia. Narrator Katie Koster's charming performance sweeps listeners into this well-paced story of Samantha's quest for her true inheritance, which takes her on a journey of self-discovery. Koster's impressive emotional range captures Samantha's complex personality. She flawlessly portrays the girl's cheekiness as a cover for embarrassment and insecurity and perfectly captures her other emotions as she learns more about her famous cousins, her father's youth, and her own heart. Using an expressive, relaxed style, Koster connects listeners to the fun of Samantha's adventures. C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2016]
