This is no Cinderella.
M c Beaton has a knack of creating unique characters and conveying a lot in few words. The plot is tight and the characters are memorable.
I like the scene where the ghost first appeared. Alice is dirty and in rags and the detail of the Duke's costume is so beautifully detailed.
When I heard her voice I recognized it, but I'm not sure from where. She is very professional and can voice an array of characters without becoming annoying.
No! It is such a great book. If it was made into a film they would make a mess of it. Maybe a BBC mini-series might handle it.
I was a huge fan of the Hamish McBeth series and have nearly every audible book. I wasn't so impressed with the female detective M C Beaton wrote next, but I'm so glad to find that he/she is still writing and if the other books are as good as this one, I'll be listening for awhile to come.
Delightful tale. Terrible narrator!
