Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] playful twist on gothics…Seasoned narrator Dunne’s pleasure in this witty tale enhances listeners’ enjoyment. She skillfully individualizes the large cast of characters and meets the formidable challenge of portraying real and imagined conversations, as well as excerpts from letters, by carefully delineating the speakers. She becomes our guide and confidante as her knowing tones tell us all we need to know about the characters and the action. With deadpan humor, the smart dialogue sizzles. A treat for the ears and the mind.” Booklist
“Fowler’s understated wit and storytelling skills are in full flower.” Boston Globe
“[A] Rubik’s cube of a book...this is venturesome work.” Seattle Times
“Fowler’s subtle humor glides across these pages.” Washington Post
