“This tale of high romance and intrigue…has aged well. Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author’s rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity and authority…it’s always clear who’s speaking and how he or she feels. Good production values top off the welcome reappearance of an old friend.”
