Fabulous!

So interesting for anyone who likes history and Jane Austen style writing as I do. Wonderful narration!

Authentic and gripping

A fascinating and unique treasure of a podcast. This is a fine experience for anyone who loves romantic and historical fiction. On a more academic level it's of interest to fans of contemporary writers like Jane Austen, Mary Wollstencroft and Mary Shelley, because they certainly read The Lady's Magazine, which was widely circulated at the time. It was the equivalent of a newspaper, blog, serialised anthology and entertainment channel of its day. So as well as serialising gripping fiction like the novel read so authentically and sensitively here by Deborah Greenfield, it provides for us a fascinating glimpse into the sensibilities of the time. Deborah is adept at choosing revealing samples of these opinions for us – which may strike us as amusing now but with which we can easily find modern parallels.
