Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jilly Bond

Historical Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Jilly Bond narrates this charming fictionalized account of Amelia Bassano Lanier, one of the famous female poets of Elizabethan England, and her interactions with William Shakespeare. Bond captures the magical language of Sharratt's story, which includes poetry and plays filled with rhymes and metrical lines. Using a range of British accents, Bond embodies the story's strong-willed women and manipulative men and delivers the narrative in melodious tones. Listeners will be swept away by Bond's performance of the story within a play within a fictional biography. Who WAS the creative genius behind Shakespeare's plays--was it the famous wordsmith or the poetess? Bond's performance of this poetic audiobook is a marvel. M.B.K.
