Narrator Susie Riddell portrays every one of the many characters in Greeley's Austen-inspired novel so credibly that it's hard to believe she's alone in the recording booth. In the world of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, Elizabeth Bennet's friend, Charlotte Lucas, has made a sensible match, marrying Vicar William Collins. His patroness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, keeps Collins on a short leash, and Riddell precisely captures her sharp tongue as well as Collins's embarrassingly slavish behavior toward her. Riddell makes clear Charlotte's distaste for her husband's social-climbing ways yet shows her strong sense of duty and commitment to William. When the unexpected occurs, Charlotte's life undergoes a disturbing shift. Riddell's strong narration of this debut novel will make listeners hope for more trips to Austen-land.
