About this title


In Victorian England, electricity is the latest scientific marvel, a fireless light that announces a new era. For Charlotte Mortimer, electricity yields something even more powerful. When she weds an ardent young engineer who is commissioned to wire the estate of a country gentleman, Charlotte finds herself in a disorienting world of new ideas and sensations--and a passion that ultimately forces her to forge a life on her own terms.

From AudioFile:

Charlotte Mortimer lives in a repressed Victorian household with her parents, making no progress with her life until a boarder, Peter Fisher, appears. His passion is to replace gaslights with electricity, and, in doing so, life takes off for them both. Kelly Hunter reads this novel with infectious ebullience. She brings such clarity and joie de vivre to every chapter and event that it's hard to stop listening. Her diction is perfect, and there's continual energy in her reading. This magical narration makes it hard to get on with one's own life. J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
