THE WAGES OF SIN Sarah Gilchrist, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mary Jane Wells

Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Mary Jane Wells is just about perfect in this mystery set in Victorian-era Scotland. Former London debutante Sarah Gilchrist was raped, confined to a sanatorium for "promiscuity," and banished in disgrace. Upon moving to Edinburgh and attending medical school, Sarah endures the jibes of the male-dominated faculty and student body. She helps out at a clinic catering to street people and "fallen women." When she recognizes a body on the dissection table as a girl she tried to help at the clinic, Sarah determines to discover how the girl died. Wells captures the gentle, self-deprecating humor of the brave, quirky heroine, and with impeccable diction, including stuffy English and delightful Scots accents, she delivers convincing secondary characters. Wells makes a terrific series debut even better. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
