In a purring voice, Elizabeth Knowelden narrates the story of the life and times of Clarise "Milady" de Winter, the nemesis of the Three Musketeers and D'Artagnan. It's an interesting spin on Dumas's classic novel. Milady is not a pleasant character--she's manipulative, seductive, and quite the villainess. As the slow-moving story is told in two timelines, 1615-16 and 1628, Knowelden's voice flows with the sweeping sentences in a style reminiscent of nineteenth-century writers like Dumas, who were masters of language and description. Using subtle inflections to differentiate the characters, Knowelden becomes Milady as she looks back over her career as a spy and an imaginative assassin.
