The tragic story of the doomed Romanovs of Russia has been told and retold over the years. This audiobook focuses on daughter Maria and her experiences during the revolution. Helen Duff's performance features a wide array of accents, and her enthusiasm for the task at hand is appealing. Indeed, Duff's energy is nearly tangible as she immerses herself in the story. Often, the consonants--the sound of the letter "s" in particular--are too sibilant, causing them to become distractions. But Duff's pacing and pronunciations are solid and keep the performance grounded. As the plot spans years, Duff's consistent delivery is a strong guide through the characters' tribulations and changes. This is a new telling of a familiar story.
