Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robert Ian Mackenzie

Historical Fiction • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Robert Ian Mackenzie narrates a sweeping romance set against the early years of the Jacobite cause in the mid-1700s. Adam Williamson is drawn into an inquiry regarding a claim made by a young widow to collect her husband's share of monies owed--but he doesn't expect all that follows. While the story is dense with religion, history, and politics, Mackenzie keeps everything moving with his adroit handling of multiple timelines and numerous characters. Mackenzie is especially skilled at consistent portrayals of various characters at different stages of their lives--a young child has clearly grown up to become an adult but is still recognizably the same person. The ending is a revelation, and very cleverly done. K.M.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
