Nicola Cornick's spellbinding gothic romance is graced with outstanding narrations by Malk Williams, Imogen Church, Charlie Sanderson, and Rebecca Courtney. In 1763, Lady Isabella is trapped in a hateful marriage to sadistic Lord Eustace Gerard. Gerard has a dress made for Isabella, a magnificent, if mysterious, gold silk gown, which he orders her to wear. In 2004, Fenella Brightwell is a spunky 13-year-old who likes to steal little things. On a school trip to the Gerard museum/estate Fenella feels an overwhelming compulsion to steal the gown. Proximity to the dress enhances one's darkest nature, and in alternate sections, Lady Isabella, Lord Eustace, Fenella, and the other important characters are given first-rate characterizations as each is drawn to the dress. Outstanding performances all around. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
