Historical Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

When Minna Bernays loses her job as a lady's companion, she has nowhere to go but to the house of her sister, Martha Freud. There her intellectual curiosity makes her an intriguing companion--and lover--for her sister's husband, Sigmund. Narrator Suzanne Toren's rich, sonorous voice displays a refinement that will suggest a European setting to many American listeners, which is appropriate as the story is set Freud's native Austria near the end of the Victorian era. Toren's ability to imply place and time with her voice helps the listener become fully immersed in the story. Although this is fiction, it is a well-researched account of a relationship that is rumored to have gone on for more than 40 years.
