Barbara Edelman gives a lively performance of Deborah Camp's book on notorious Civil War-era bandit queen Belle Starr. This romantic retelling of Starr's tumultuous love affairs with some of the most infamous men of her time - including Jesse James and Cole Younger - lets Edelman's skill in recreating accents shine through the characters' spirited dialogue. She slips easily into different voices while keeping up the momentum of the story as it takes listeners from Starr's teenaged years to the heartbreaking end of her relationship with Younger.
