Narrator Katharine McEwan portrays a wide range of personalities of varying ages and stations in this look at women and class in 1909 England. Vicky Darling wants to be an artist but is totally under the control of her wealthy father. Her life changes when she becomes involved in the Suffragette movement and realizes she can be what she wants to be. McEwan deftly captures Vicky; her maid (and eventual friend), Sophie; the snobbish man she's engaged to; and the down-to-earth policeman she loves. Fascinating tidbits about art history and the Women's movement make the story much more than a romance. Audio perfectly captures the myriad voices, accents, and characters in this fascinating slice of the early twentieth century. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
