I'm not sure I can do this justice. On a very basic level it's an adventure story set in the 1930s about a child uncovering a mystery in a country house. Delphine is an extraordinary heroine - a lonely, brave, confused, resourceful and troubled child who mainly wants to save her father who suffers from PTSD. Beyond that, it's difficult not to give anything away. It's exciting and unexpected at every turn. I really like Tim Clare's style of writing; I was totally caught up in the world he creates.
Julie Teal does a good job keeping the characters distinct. I think her voice for Delphine is particularly good.
I'm aware I'm not being particularly helpful so just give it a listen and make up your own mind. I will say this, there's a scene where the honours of the title are explained and it's horrific but fascinating.

Found the second half gripping, interested by the historical details, mildly irritated by the the narrator's inflection. Like like
