Cassandra Campbell and Saskia Maarleveld share narrating duties for the newest Beatriz Williams historical novel, which involves the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's stay in the Bahamas during WWII. The story jumps between three time periods, and although Campbell and Maarleveld both narrate capably, the frequent shifts are confusing. Campbell jauntily portrays Lulu Randolph, an aspiring young writer for a society magazine who arrives in the Bahamas to describe the glamour of the Windsors' lifestyle. When Nassau's richest resident is murdered, Lulu--rendered by Campbell as something of a Noir dame--pursues answers. In a European accent, Maarleveld also delivers the the account of a Swiss woman named Elfride, following her from 1900 through WWI, and recounting the lives of her descendants.
