As the 19th century draws to a close, James Weston, Earl of Falmouth, is dying along with it. Despite living in an age of airships and automatons, even London's finest physicians cannot cure the young man's ailing heart. His last hope lies in retrieving a powerful artifact from the remote island home of an eccentric scientist's daughter.
Elspeth Shaw prefers her solitary life to the tragic results that come from mixing in society. Elspeth is cursed: every mortal being who forms an attachment to her dies a horrible death. Yet when the doomed Lord Falmouth arrives in search of the very artifact that blights her, she hasn't the will to refuse. But the price for cheating death may be more than any human can pay....

Very good until it suddenly stopped...
I am somewhat new to Audible books but found this format thoroughly enjoyable. The narration was clear and totally in character.
Elspeth was performed in a believable and pleasing manner - heartfelt and plausible.
As a novice, I needed several visits to listen to the book in it's entirety.
Listening to this narration of a book has piqued my interest in others.
