Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Deanna Raybourn returns with a brand-new novella, starring her beloved heroine, the intrepid Lady Julia Grey.

To mark the passing of another decade, the esteemed - and eccentric - March family have assembled at Bellmont Abbey to perform the Twelfth Night Revels for their sleepy English village. But before Lady Julia and her handsome, sleuthing husband, Nicolas Brisbane, can take to the stage, a ruckus in the stable yard demands their attention. An abandoned infant is found nestled in the steel helm of St. George. What's more, their only lead is the local legend of a haunted cottage and its ghastly inhabitant - who seems to have returned. Once again, Lady Julia and Nicholas take up the challenge to investigate, and when the source of the mystery is revealed, they'll be faced with an impossible choice - one that will alter the course of their lives... forever. Don't miss a single tale in the Lady Julia Grey series - or Deanna Raybourn's latest novel, City of Jasmine.

Twelfth Night - Very Entertaining Novella

Thoroughly enjoyed this very entertaining novella, written with Deanna Raybourn's usual consummate skill. Compliments to Ellen Archer as an excellent and thoroughly absorbing narrator. I look forward to listening to this again at some time in the future.

Lady Julia Fan

I have been a Lady Julia fan for years and have mostly read the books. This one I listened to, obviously, and found the voices lacking. Brisbane's voice could have been darker and smoother as he has been portrayed.

I agree with another post on here that Portia's voice did not fit at all. Portia was always portrayed as intelligent, wise, calm, and worldly woman. In the voice that has been used for her it makes her seem like she is simpering and whiney. It's aweful and dissapointing.

Overall I still like the series but wish they would develop the voices a little more true to the character that Deanna has spent so much time developing.

A good Novella, Horrible narration.

As usual, The March family Twelth Night celebration is chaos personified.
A possible witch sighting, family and staff antics, and a play to perform.

What could possibly go wrong?

I have listened to the entire series this weekend.
The narration was OK.
ELLEN ARCHER'S --- Portia's Voice was excessively high pitched, irritating, annoying, grating, demeaning to give any audible character such a voice, and distracting from a good storyline!!!

ELLEN ARCHER RUINED Listening to the storyline since book One, EVERYTIME Portia screeched in all the books.

One voice done so horribly can ruin listening to an entire series. Hence, I rate narration 1-2 stars ---for ruining a great character with such an awful voice. 😖 😱 😨

For this reason I would say read the books instead.

The rest of the voices are done well, but with some odd pronunciations of words.

I enjoyed this series and it too bad there are no more books to this series.
One more novella and then nothing.

Thank goodness, she started the Veronica Speedwell Series which is an utter delight.

Sum up: liked storyline for all books
HATED THE AWFUL NARRATION OF PORTIA'S VOICE!!! 😖 BY ELLEN ARCHER. utterly distracting.

Too short

Enjoyed Lady Julia and family as always. Story way too short. Perhaps the 3 novellas should have been combined to make one complete book.

Continued Holiday Merriment

Lady Julia and Nicholas are still at the Abbey for the March holiday revels, where he gets drafted to play St George as the newest member of the family.
An abandoned baby and local haunting bring old and new family into their lives.
I really enjoy these novellas in this series.
Archer does a decent job of narration.

A story to accompany the previous novella

Setting: Sussex January 1890
Genre: Mystery
This novel is in the same visit to Sussex as in the novella Silent Night. A newborn baby is found in the stable at Belmont Abbey, and it is up to Lady Julia to learn who abandoned him and why. There are some accompanying small mysteries: a ghost; missing jewelry; and the reason the Earl March is so depressed. Despite these facets, the novella is largely uneventful. However, the main event is important in the Lady Julia Grey story arc.
Aside from the stingy length and the dearth of action, there are no inconsistencies in established characters, and new ones are well done. The narration continues fine in this book, and it is appreciated that the same narrator has been used throughout the series.
