Science Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Rachel Bavidge does justice to this bawdy tale of Charlotte, an orphan who learns to make her living as a prostitute in nineteenth-century Copenhagen and then finds herself in 21st-century London. A conniver and entrepreneur, she and her companion, Fru Schleswig, a grotesque woman she cares for, find more than they bargained for when they take on a cleaning job for a fine lady. Seamlessly performing the Cockney slang of Charlotte, as well as Lady Crack's refined speech, Bavidge adds realism to the curious plot. As a bonus, the last CD offers an interesting interview with the author, in which she reveals the background to the story. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
