Narrator Kate Reading is at her best in this audiobook, capturing diverse voices and accents, dramatic exchanges, and lush descriptions with her regal voice and confident delivery. This work of historical fiction involves an unlikely combination: Marie Curie and seances. Science and faith battle each other through the experiences of house- maid Lucia, who finds herself in the middle of this age-old conflict as she makes her way through early-twentieth-century Paris. Reading moves through the detailed imagery and terminology of Sherman's research with ease. There are times when the facts become so plentiful as to distract from the plot, but Reading brings us back to the story with her patient performance.
