Donada Peters sounds like European royalty. Her upper-class accent and ability to move seamlessly between English and French make her the perfect candidate to narrate Koen's prequel to her bestselling THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY. As Peters tells the story of Alice Verney, maid of honor to England's Queen Catherine, she brings to life the extravagance and scandal that defined the seventeenth-century royal courts of England's Charles II and France's Louis XIV. Peters's character portrayals, from courtiers and dukes to transgendered prostitutes, are distinct and believable. She handles the multiple plot lines with ease. Her narration bristles with energy and keeps the listener hooked. D.J.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
