Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Feisty but ever charming, Ursula Blanchard, lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth I, takes on a dangerous assignment as she tries to learn about a plot to overthrow the queen. Ursula's husband calls her "salt spoon," referring to her salty way of stating things and indicating the witty slant of the story. Historical details, real-life characters and little known tidbits of information make this enjoyable. A diverse range of characters and nationalities gives the talented Nadia May an opportunity to display her skill. A closing summation of Buckley's own views on writing and adapting facts to fiction adds to the fun. Mystery fans, history buffs and anyone who enjoys the unique will love listening to Ursula share her adventures. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
