Narrated by Canadian actress Jayne Paterson, McVeigh's novel is the story of a young woman who learns how to rely on herself and see things for what they really are. When her father dies and leaves her destitute, Frances Irvine is left with no good options; it isn't as if a woman can make her own way in London in 1880. Eventually, she decides to accept her cousin's proposal of marriage and join him in South Africa, a country that will test her very limits. Paterson is a skilled and unobtrusive narrator. She enables the listener to become completely subsumed in Frances's story. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
