Narrator Mary Jane Wells's sparkling performance immerses the listener in late-nineteenth-century England in this romance between Lady Merritt Sterling and Scotsman Keir MacRae. Lady Merritt runs her late husband's shipping company. When Keir brings his whiskey to London, passion flares between the two. Wells uses an authentic-sounding Scottish accent that thickens as Keir experiences both passion and frustration. Someone is trying to murder him, lending mystery to the romance. Wells's portrayal of Lady Merritt's cheerful personality sparkles throughout the story, offering a wonderful contrast to Keir's Scottish accent. Wells's engaging narration, coupled with the mystery surrounding Keir's past, makes for a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience. S.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
