Lady Connie


Read by Simon Evers

(3.8 stars; 22 reviews)

Constance Bledlow is a beautiful monied 20 year old with the world at her feet. She arrives in Oxford to spend a few months with her impoverished uncle, a University reader, and his family. She conquers Oxford society and sets many hearts aflame, among them that of Douglas Falloden, a conceited aristocrat at the university. However, his assumption that she will fall at his feet comes to nothing. Later, some ragging by ‘bloods’, led by Falloden, of a Polish musician at his college (Radowitz) leads to a bad injury. The book, set in Oxford, follows the aftermath of the incident and the way the lives of the three surprisingly intertwine. - Summary by Simon Evers (11 hr 11 min)

Reviews


(5 stars)

Amazing narration, Simon! This novel depicts perfectly what it used to be like for women and is a real piece of history!


(5 stars)

A feel-good story with good character development, & well-read.


(3 stars)

Faultless reading, as expected; however, I couldn't get comfortable with the acceptance of recurring theme that women are to blame for men being overcome by their passion and thus their reprehensible behaviour.
