Narrator Jennywren Walker instills the heroine of this audiobook with a touch of attitude befitting a member of the upper class in England in 1788. This novella begins a new series introducing Alice, who depends on that attitude to see her through some uncomfortable situations. For example, she saves her father from ruin with an unconventional career for a woman--that of a highwayman. As the plot proceeds into time travel, Walker expresses the bravado in Alice with a light touch sufficient to make her unfolding character seem intriguing rather than heavy-handed. Walker portrays Alice's chosen life partner, Jane, as quiet and supportive but offers hints of a strong woman who could be developed in future installments.
