Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Virginia Leishman

Historical Fiction • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Any study of British literature will likely yield time spent with the celebrated poet Lord Byron, the tempestuous antagonist of this fascinating audiobook. Narrator Virginia Leishman's gracefully clipped British accent brings to life the story of Ada, Byron's only legitimate daughter. Simultaneously expansive and precise, Leishman's voice echoes the quintessentially accessible nature of this work of historical fiction. Listeners will be seized by the emotional struggles surrounding Ada's lineage and held in thrall by the sense of place established by both prose and performer. One needn't be an English professor to enjoy the drama of the story, told so well by author and narrator. Indeed, elegant in style, engaged in delivery, and riveting in content, this audiobook will entertain a wide array of listeners. L.B.F.
