Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This story collection is composed of twelve gothic dramas delivered by five narrators. Their accomplished portrayals capture the straitlaced manners and mores of the Victorian era…Cassandra Campbell’s polished portrayal of Bedford, the stately butler in ‘The Mysterious Key,’ is also memorable. The mature and spirited portrayal of Maurice’s rehabilitation in ‘The Abbot’s Ghost,’ a Christmas tale of intrigue, is especially engaging. Together, the accomplished narrators invoke intrigue, suspense, and provocative themes, none of which are what most listeners expect in the work of Alcott.” AudioFile
