Nneka Okoye's Shakespearian-style narration works well in this English story of society and curses in the year 1814. Our hobgoblin bard, Robin, invisibly follows 19-year-old Miss Maelys Mitchelmore, with hardly any interference, to compile a story of comedy, tragedy, and romance. When her clothes disintegrate during a ball, Miss Mitchelmore discovers she is under a curse. She is rescued by the brooding Lady Georgianna Landrake, sardonically nicknamed "the Duke of Annadale." As Miss Mitchelmore's curse becomes increasingly more dangerous, the two women's mutual love becomes harder to resist. Okoye's voice for Robin, the storyteller, is exquisitely caressing and devilish. Additionally, Okoye's theatrical credentials do her credit, as the listener can easily envision all these characters onstage. S.S.
