No character is too minor to receive the full treatment of Katherine Kellgren's astonishing narration. When Penelope is hired as governess at Ashton Place, she's puzzled by the howling that everyone else refuses to acknowledge. She's soon shocked to learn that her young charges were initially raised in the wild. Kellgren’s portrayals of the heroine, lords, ladies, children, and servants add authenticity to a somewhat melodramatic tale. Most enjoyable are the pithy sayings from Penelope’s school days that run through her mind as she copes with her many adversities. S.G.B.
