Professional reviews

"Susan Lyons takes on the dynamic voice of plucky Louisa Clarke, whose life changes dramatically when she's hired as an assistant by the rich and cultured Will Trainer. Lyons's pacing and variations in pitch bring out Will's angst and Louisa's growing enthusiasm for enriching her life with new experiences. The choice to have several other narrators deliver the monologues of Will's mother, father, personable Aussie caretaker, and Louisa's outspoken sister seems unnecessary. Though the secondary narrators reinforce Lyons's portrayal of the characters in the main narrative, the short parts they read are jarring. Both the switches in narrators and the discernible edits in the audio are distracting elements in an otherwise strong performance by Lyons. M.F. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
