Long after the battle of Culloden in 1760, Jamie is a paroled prisoner in the remote Lake District of England, where he cares for Lord Dulsaney’s horses. Lord John Grey checks on the prisoners, including Jamie. Rick Holmes’s soft, musical voice delivers most of Jamie’s parts, defining him with a Scottish burr. Jeff Woodman portrays Grey with a crisp British accent. The alternating narration of the chapters is subtle even to the practiced listener, and each narrator handles the accents consistently. The portrayal of 2-year-old Willie, Jamie’s secret illegitimate son, the ninth Earl of Ellesmere, is also well done. As Lord Grey and Jamie head off to Ireland in search of a Druid relic that could raise havoc between the island and Britain, the polished dual narration keeps the listener engaged.
