Kristin Atherton's excellent use of accents, inflection, and tempo brings Alison Goodman's characters to life in this lively feminist Regency adventure. Spinsters Lady Augusta Colebrook and her twin, Lady Julia, may be considered "on the shelf" by some members of the ton, but others know them as determined deliverers of women and girls in calamitous situations. Atherton is particularly effective at voicing the smart, cheeky, and often tender dialogue between "Gus" and Lord Evan Belford, lately escaped from an Australian penal colony. From aristocratic lords who overestimate their value to clever, fashionably genteel ladies, and from affable innkeepers to a dastardly madhouse warden--Atherton's animated performance captures them all in three interlinking stories that will delight fans of Regency fare.
