This is my favorite of Mercedes Lackey's re-told fairy tales, and I was pleased to find it available in audio format. Maya Witherspoon is a terrific character and you immediately become engrossed in her story as a young Anglo-Indian woman who has successfully conquered the barriers of the male-dominated English medical/surgical profession in the late 1800s. The people she meets in her London charity hospital work and her private medical practice are vividly portrayed, and many become her friends and supporters.
Michelle Ford does a quite good job of differentiating the characters' voices and accents, both male and female.
Highly recommended, and I know I'll listen to this again and again.

I enjoyed this story very much, my first from Mercedes Lackey. It was such an interesting mixture of England, India, Turn of the Century, Women's Suffragettes, and magic, with a splash of romance thrown in, for good measure. Michelle Ford did a good job of narration, though she mis-pronounced several words. Difference between English and American pronounciations? Not sure.

After reading the blurb I was a little sceptical but couldn’t find anything else to tickle my fancy. I was pleasantly impressed by this tale and I’m now looking forward to working my way through the rest in the set
That was very good. Its a great story. The Indian intrest provides a change to the usual outcomes and the story is full of interest.
I liked it a lot.
I am looking forwards to more like it in the future.
