With her keen talent for British accents, narrator Orlagh Cassidy masterfully delivers this stand-alone from Jacqueline Winspear, which introduces powerful, brave heroine Elinor White. The story moves around in time from White's current life in Britain in 1947 to her recruitment in the Belgian Resistance as an adolescent during WWI and her work as an SOE agent during WWII. Cassidy partners with Winspear to guide listeners through the emotional, physical, and long-term impacts of two wars and while doing so illuminates the unrecognized role of women. Cassidy's tone, pace, and pitch drive up the tension in the frightening war scenes. Cassidy expertly voices men, women, sulking adolescents, and young children, providing an engrossing experience of Winspear's beautifully written work. E.Q.
