Barbara Rosenblat's stellar performance turns this inconsequential literary fluff into a delightful piece. Emma Greyson, lady's companion and woman of intuition, is unwillingly drawn into a conspiracy of intrigue surrounding a lost book of mystical secrets, including a recipe for "telepathic tea." Edison Stokes, hot on the trail of the same items, enlists Emma's help, and the two (predictably) fall in love amidst the multiple murders and peccadilloes of early England. Rosenblat's character portrayals, down to the least important footman, are impeccable. Her dialects are perfect. Best of all, she brings a delicious sense of fun to the story.
