Charlotte Sophia by Tina Andrews, Read by Adjoa Andoh
Enlightening Historical Fiction—With an Amazing Narration
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Narrator Adjoa Andoh delivers an intriguing epic journey through 50 years in the life of Charlotte Sophia, the first Moorish queen of England and wife of “mad” King George III, from Tina Andrews’ Charlotte Sophia. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Sandi Henschel discuss the engaging, theatrical narration Andoh brings to this new recording. Andoh shifts smoothly between emotions as she voices Charlotte caring for her sick husband, attempting to pass anti-slave-trade legislation, and dealing with blackmail, murder, depravity, and insanity. The audiobook is enlightening—Andoh is amazing.
