After the death of Lenobia’s legitimately born sister, Cecile, their mother seizes the opportunity to send the illegitimate Lenobia to a better life in America in Cecile’s place. As Lenobia boards a ship bound from her native French village to New Orleans in 1788, narrator Caitlin Davies gently balances the emotional tenors of her journey with convincing French and Creole accents. Davies easily conveys the apprehension Lenobia feels as she must deceive everyone around her as well as the terror she experiences when a lecherous bishop who knows her true identity also boards the ship. Listeners will find themselves most captivated, though, by the tender love that Lenobia develops with a Creole horse hand named Martin.
