When young and beautiful governess Kate Malvern finds herself unemployed, she is taken in by Minerva Broome, the aunt she has never met, and whisked away to the majestic country home of Staplewood. However, things are not as they seem: strange things start to happen in the manor and Staplewood soon turns from an inviting stately house to a cold and gloomy mansion with a dreadful secret! One of Georgette Heyer’s later novels, Cousin Kate sees the author take a more experimental turn as she blends the Regency romance genre with the suspenseful style of Gothic horror. National Theatre actress Jilly Bond has read over 220 audiobooks in 15 years. Her award-winning recordings include Bertie, May & Mrs. Fish, which was an Observer ‘Audiobook of the Week’ and Journeys through Italy, a Sunday Times ‘Audiobook of the Year’. She has utilized her knowledge of European languages for books set in World War II Germany, Russia and France, including Helen Dunmore’s The Siege and The Betrayal. Cousin Kate is her first recording for Naxos AudioBooks.
