Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Hunt's novel tests the skills of a narrator with two characters, polar opposites, whose life experience ranges from naïveté and innocent wonder to erudition and rueful wisdom. At first, it may seem that Marguerite Gavin lacks the gravitas to hit all the right notes, but gradually skepticism gives way to the realization that she is totally in Hunt’s element. The whimsical novel, which offers surprising depth, revolves around the relationship between Louisa, a young, open-hearted New York City chambermaid, and the aged real-life inventor Nikola Tesla, who ruminates over missed opportunities—in science and in love. Hunt jumps from one to the other, as wide a gap as a narrator might have to leap. Gavin delivers both characters with seamless transitions, not to mention charm.
