Moira Quirk gives crisp, purposeful voice to Felicity Montague, a young Englishwoman in the 1700s with the single-minded ambition to become a doctor--a path that seems hopelessly closed to her. When she tracks down her idol, Dr. Platt, and reconnects with childhood friend Johanna, it's the beginning of an action-packed, fantastical adventure. Quirk makes the most of her portrayal of Johanna, whose high, girlish voice rises and falls with her emotions and belies her strength and ingenuity, and uses a deeper, accented voice for pirate Sim. Fans of THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE will be glad to encounter Percy and Monty again in this satisfying sequel. And listeners will be rooting all the way for these formidable women who are determined to carve out lives for themselves on their own terms.
