Listeners will find that time travel is possible as narrator Rupert Degas delivers this Georgian romance in an evocative voice. Degas's courtly tone introduces Jack, the disgraced Earl of Wyncham. Cast out by London society, he is reduced to roadside robbery to stave off ennui. But after he rescues the young Diana from the unwelcome advances of the Duke of Andover, family and friends rally to his defense. Degas's delivery of the foibles and fashions of eighteenth-century English nobility is exquisite; he highlights Jack's winsome humor and his brother Richard's frenetic guilt with equal panache. In the impassioned dialogue of the brothers' wives, women's bravery and limited options are made painfully clear. French, English, and Irish accents round out an immersive, action-packed historical romance. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
