Narrator Kay Eluvian's luminous performance enriches this Regency-era friends-to-lovers romance. After faking her own death at the Battle of Waterloo in order to live fully, Viola Carroll reemerges as the companion of her inimitable sister-in-law, Lady Marley. Eluvian's keen sense of dramatic emphasis and comic timing come to the fore as Viola reunites with her childhood friend, the Duke of Gracewood. The young woman's playful humor and vulnerability complement the Duke's brooding personality. Eluvian elicits the story's emotional complexities as the pair cope with the intense aftereffects of war and their irrepressible desire for each other. When Gracewood's quirky younger sister debuts in London society, a menagerie of deplorable aristocrats emerges. Eluvian's nuanced characterizations are the perfect match for this affirming romantic journey. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
