All the Queen's Players transports listeners back to the 16th century, when Mary Queen of Scots has just been executed and a young woman named Rosamund Walsingham joins Queen Elizabeth's palace staff.
Rosalind Ashford performs this historical novel in eloquent, patrician accents that could belong to a noblewoman. It is no surprise that she has recorded several novels by Jane Feather, for her voice is delectably suited for romance in a historical setting. Real figures like Christopher Marlowe and Mary Stuart brush shoulders with the intriguing figments of Feather's imagination. As opposed to a traditional romance, this novel does not rely on a happy ending to send its listeners home satisfied.
