What to expect

B.J. Harrison reads Louisa May Alcott’s famous novella “Behind a Mask”, which is widely considered to be Alcott’s masterpiece in sensation fiction.
A wealthy Victorian-era family recruits Jean Muir as sixteen-year-old Bella’s governess. But soon enough, Jean Muir appears to have everyone under her spell, and to have the power to do everything as she pleases.
This novella from the late 19th century was initially published under Louisa May Alcott’s pseudonym A. M. Barnard. Filled with femme fatale energy and social power struggles, the story was even considered to be very controversial at the time of its publication.
B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
