Narrator Mary Jane Wells deftly weaves the four stories in this anthology. When four friends at Madame Rochambeaux's Gentle School for Girls find an old sixpence, they're convinced that it will bring them luck in getting married. The stories follow the old rhyme: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe." The listener easily envisions the ballrooms of the English aristocracy as each heroine meets her true love. Wells subtly distinguishes the voices of the four couples, matching the pace of each story. All four stories blend into a satisfying listen. S.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
