Young Adult Ages 14+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Four narrators deliver a YA epistolary novel set at the end of the nineteenth century. Sophia, Polly, and Tirzah were friends at school but have now gone their separate ways: Sophia to London, Polly to Liverpool, and Tirzah to Scotland. The narrators imbue the characters' ensuing letters with the emotions of each girl as she overcomes her personal difficulties. Dowd gives voice to Sophia's frustration at having to sell herself on the marriage market, Cranney portrays Polly's aching desire to improve the lives of the orphans she works with, and Burnett gives a chilling performance as Tirzah slips in and out of depression and apathy. Wingfield charms as the various suitors each girl encounters. A delightful ensemble performance. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
