Read by Pam Ward
Pam Ward portrays McCarry’s fascinating characters with verve and animation in this period romance. She convincingly depicts the young and high-spirited Fanny as she journeys from London to New England during the French and Indian War with her godfather, Oliver Barebones, and his willful, eccentric wife, Rose. Ward’s steady, clear alto sounds tense and fearful when Fanny experiences a night attack by the French and Indians, is captured, and is finally rescued by Philippe, her French lover. Ward’s reading reflects the many emotions of these characters, especially those of Fanny and Philippe as they discover a new life in the untamed wilderness.
