Historical Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Perky 21st-century American researcher Eloise Kelly uncovers another case from the files of the Pink Carnation, British female successor to the Scarlet Pimpernel, who heroically and clandestinely fought Napoleonic espionage. As in the earlier SECRET HISTORY OF THE PINK CARNATION, Eloise finds plenty of mystery, adventure, romance, and humor in the old code books she consults -- plus, perhaps, a little romance of her own. This is all great fun for Kate Reading, who ably switches epochs and cultures, becoming very British in the early nineteenth century and very American (and befittingly younger-sounding) in the 21st. Reading is enjoying this romp, and so will the listener. Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
