Narrator Elizabeth Jasicki depicts a romance between a suffragist at Oxford and a powerful duke that shows why the political is always personal. Anabelle Archer is a brilliant scholar who has managed to secure a place in the first class of women at Oxford. Jasicki does a wonderful job portraying Annabelle's constant frustration with the various limitations and restrictions placed on her by society. The Duke of Montgomery has no such constraints placed on him, of course. He merely chafes at familial responsibilities. Jasicki perfectly captures his annoyance at being thwarted by such seeming trivialities. Overall, Jasicki's narration is excellent, but the wide power imbalance between Annabelle and the duke may hinder this story from being enjoyed by all.
