Biography & Memoir • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

Its subject is one of history's favorite romantic heroes, but don't choose this book if you're looking for a dramatic or fictionalized biography. This is a scholarly treatment of the exiled Stuart prince's hapless quest for the throne he believed was his. History lovers will find a lot to enjoy in its delicious characterizations: the backstairs and political gossip revealed in numerous quoted letters, as well as the details of travel, politics and warfare. Crossley's precise reading, which expertly matches the author's tone, is pleasant, perfectly paced and clear as a bell--or a BBC narration.
