Historical Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Eliza Tally, the daughter of a midwife, is impregnated by a local lord and sold into servitude to a London apothecary. But all is not what it seems, for the apothecary, Grayson Black, keeps too watchful an eye on his new servant and experiments upon the hapless inhabitants of his house. Julia Barrie reads this ponderous story of shopkeepers and servants. Barrie's light tones contrast jarringly with the graphic sexual language and gory details of eighteenth-century births and deaths. The story engages and repulses the listener by turns as it tells of Eliza and her fate at the hands of the powerful. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
