Narrator Julie Teal's impeccable English tones are just right for this exploration of the women in one of England's most famous and eccentric families. Written by the great-great-granddaughter of the first person we meet, a Spanish flamenco dancer named Pepita, the audiobook explores the passions of the Sackville-West and Nicholson women across generations and countries, a family that included renowned garden designer Vita Sackville-West. They are a talented, often impossible group, and they make for a fascinating story. Teal's French and American pronunciations could have used some coaching, but the rest of her performance is excellent. She paces the history so that we are never lost, crisply navigates the web of names and places, and paints moving portraits of these smart, willful, and determined women.
