Narrator Ruby Hunt's vibrant storytelling brings Ana María Luna Valdés into sharp focus as she sparkles in Victorian London society in 1863. Ana María and her sisters, Gabriela and Isabel, fled Mexico's war with Napoleon to be goodwill ambassadors in England. Hunt presents their bilingual escapades in British society with élan. But while her English and Irish accents are subtly delivered, they are not as proficient as her Spanish. The audio's strength is the fiery discussions Ana María has with her sisters and fellow outsider Gideon Fox on topics as various as feminism, the slave trade, and evolution. Gideon and Ana's romance seems inevitable as they have endless topics left to debate. Hunt imbues Ana María with an impassioned spirit that will have listeners' full attention.
