Historical Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Shiromi Arserio presents Astra, the quintessential "bright young thing." Posh, pampered, and pretty, she relishes the ritual gatherings of high society. But Astra's life changes when her parents die in a car crash, leaving her with debts, dark family secrets, and the need to make desperate decisions. Listeners will enjoy watching a new Astra emerge. She must counter malicious gossip and confront her money problems. Arserio portrays Astra as a clever woman with self-control and drive. The secondary characters also sound authentic, including the almost-too-perfect suitor, the Earl of Dunreaven. The story is set in the 1930s, and listeners will savor the charm of the bygone era.
