by | Read by Justine Eyre

Romantic Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Justine Eyre's tone and pacing change as she shepherds listeners between the two settings of this novel: current and nineteenth-century England. In the present, Eyre portrays grad student Eloise Kelly, who divides her feelings between her lover and the manuscripts for which he is executor. Eyre uses a more measured, precise narrative tone for the earlier period, which involves Lady Charlotte Landsdowne and Robert, duke of Dovedale, who has returned from India to avenge a murder. Willig’s fifth installment in her Pink Carnation series also involves espionage amid the Napoleonic era. Historical details like those about mad King George and opium-fueled orgies add real intrigue to this story. S.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
