by | Read by Nadia May

Romantic Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © (1920)

These fingers have written many accolades about the voice and interpretations of Nadia May, but they are tingling with pleasure at her rendition of E.F. Benson's characters in the English town of Riseholme. Lucia is the queen of high society, who rules the rich denizens with her own tastes in culture and the fine arts. Because of her utter dominance, there are those who would like to see her downfall. Such fun does Nadia May have with the the stylized characters that the listener actually lives there and is part of the silly rituals of the '30's. The blustery colonel, the talkative Mrs. Weston who never gets to the point of her tale, and the Antrobus sisters, Piggy and Goosie, are all given grand verve May's exuberance. Her delight in reading this novel is directly transmitted to the lucky listener. J.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
