Baroness Emma Orczy (1865-1945) was born in Hungary, the daughter of a baron. Raised in wealth among the aristocracy, she determined to achieve success as a painter and illustrator before starting a writing career. She wrote in English, although she did not speak the language until she was fifteen, and she produced many short stories and detective novels. Her greatest success came with the historical adventure novel The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Johanna Ward (a.k.a. Kate Reading) is an Audie(R) Award-winning narrator and has received numerous Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine. She is also a theater actor in the Washington, DC, area and has been a member of Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company since 1987. Her work onstage has been recognized by the Helen Hayes Awards Society, among others. She and her husband live in Hyattsville, Maryland, with their two children.From AudioFile:
Published in 1906, this tale of high romance and intrigue, set during the bloodiest days of the French Revolution, is the first of several sequels to The Scarlet Pimpernel. It has aged well. Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author's rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity and authority. She also renders fluently the frequent names and phrases in French. Although character voices are not highly differentiated, it's always clear who's speaking and how he or she feels. Good production values top off the welcome reappearance of an old friend. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
