Earphones Award Winner

Author Jane Dunn steeps her book in the full flavor of the Elizabethan Age. There are plenty of descriptions of sumptuous clothes, jewels, and food, as well as grisly death. The machinations of the nobles and relatives trying to get their hands on the loot are told in lively detail. Like a story from today's headlines, both factions are willing to kill and to die in the name of God. This raw struggle for dominance leaves one woman with no one to trust and the other dead. Donada Peters is without a doubt one of the most gifted narrators working today. While she excels at biographies and historical nonfiction, she brings a golden touch to anything she does. It cannot be said too strongly: She has one of the most beautiful, well-trained voices you'll ever be lucky enough to hear. D.G.
