Mystery & Suspense • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Historical fiction and gothic suspense at its best, Rowland's novel tells a story that also dramatizes the classic author's true literary trials and tribulations. After a chance encounter on the train to London with a mysterious young woman who is later murdered, Charlotte becomes ensnared in an investigation full of Victorian-era British settings and sensibilities. As the story ranges throughout the British Empire and beyond, narrator Roslyn Landor delivers the web of intrigue with lively tones and accents worthy of this spunky heroine. Landor's soft, melodic, and educated British enunciations ideally suit Charlotte's ruminations and speech, and Landor's throaty, guttural utterances accurately portray the novel's masculine counterparts. This soothing, well-modulated narrative provides enjoyment and intrigue. A.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
