In this story set in nineteenth-century Canada, 16-year-old house servant Grace Marks is accused of murdering her mistress and master. Listeners witness the unfolding of the following 30 years: Grace's own musings, as well as the struggles of those who attempt to prove her innocence. Elizabeth McGovern breathes life into Atwood's creation with such masterful and insightful portrayals as the soft-spoken Grace; her saucy friend, Mary Whitney; and Dr. Jordan, whose youthful vitality occasionally seeps out from under his scholarly cloak. Without exaggeration, ALIAS GRACE juxtaposes the thrill of mystery with the deliciously tangible detail and animate dialogue Atwood fans have come to admire and expect. R.A.P.
