Narrator Lucy Scott brings to life the drawing rooms and social complexities of nineteenth-century English gentry in this audiobook classic, first published in 1801. Belinda Portman is the only unmarried niece of Mrs. Stanhope, a social climber who prides herself on making powerful matches for female family members--often above their stations. Now Belinda must navigate her own heart and mind while contending with the whims of her capricious benefactor, Lady Delacourt, and the ever-present danger of reputation-damaging gossip. Scott captures the witty conversations and ambiance of high-society London with her thoughtful character portrayals. Her narration keeps the humor and insights alive for contemporary listeners.
