Finty Williams's gentle narration invites listeners into this wonderous audiobook about the power of words. Beatryce has no memory of her past yet possesses the ability to read and write, a talent forbidden to women. A prophecy about such a girl threatens the current king's crown, and with the help of a monk, a boy, an ex-king, and a cantankerous goat, Beatryce searches for answers. Williams's English accent and distinct character voices immerse listeners in this short historical audiobook. Williams conveys Beatryce's innocent curiosity in a situation she doesn't understand, as well as the frustrations of an intelligent child who is asked to keep her gifts a secret. This audiobook is so enlivening that listeners won't miss the illustrations in the print edition. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
