Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Wings of the Dove represents the pinnacle of James’ prose.” Louis Auchincloss, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“The melodic quality of Henry James’s prose is even more so as Juliet Stevenson narrates…Stevenson is masterful in guiding the listener through what could be described as cumbersome detail. There is a soft quality to her cadence that comes through in both descriptive detail and dialogue. British and American characters alike sound sensitive and elegant as Stevenson smoothly transitions between their accents. Although the novel itself is somber in tone, Stevenson’s reading enlivens the prose and invites listeners to explore these complex characters.” AudioFile
