When Miss Beckwith assigns her class a report on a Victorian subject, Charlie (Charlotte) thinks boring. But as she toils over her project about a nursery maid, she comes to realize how interesting and difficult that era was. Charlie also gets to know, like and respect both Miss Beckwith and a boy in her class, each of whom she had previously decided were also----boring. Eve Karpf does an outstanding job with both posh and ordinary characters, as well as the linguistic differences of diverse times. Karpf's sterling delivery makes each character special and distinct. This prize-winning story is even more splendid as narrated by this accomplished actress. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
