Reviews

Lord John Grey first appeared in New York Times best-selling author Gabaldon's ongoing, multivolume time travel/fantasy/-romance "Outlander" series. In this work, it is 1758, and Lord John's widowed mother is about to remarry. He and his older brother, Hal, meet with the bridegroom and his stepson, Percy Wainwright. Lord John realizes he has met the stepson before at a homosexual brothel. Percy is interested in joining the army and is persuaded to buy into Lord John's regiment, as was common practice at that time. They are off to fight in Prussia as part of the Seven Years' War, a global conflict of which the French and Indian War was a small part. Lord John is wounded and returns to England, where he begins to suspect that a series of street attacks might be related to his father's questionable suicide. How Lord John remains mostly in the closet yet pursues his sexual and other interests in an impeccable 18th-century melodrama makes for "don't-want-to-stop" listening! Actor Jeff Woodman brings an experience of dialects and accents to this novel. The English shadings he employs can fool the American ear into believing he was born near London. Listeners will appreciate that each CD begins and ends with an announcement indicating the number of each CD in the book, so accidental mix-ups can be avoided. Recommended for libraries with historic mystery collections.-David Faucheux, Louisiana Audio Information & Reading Svc., Lafayette Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Gabaldon provides a rich, abundantly researched, entirely readable portrait of life among the English upper classes in the 1750s. From London's literary salons and political intrigue to fearsome battle scenes in the Seven Years' War, her writing is always vivid and often lyrical" * The Washington Post *
