Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Frances Hodgson Burnett

Narrated By: Caroline Driggs

Duration: 7 hours 29 minutes

Summary:

Have you ever wondered what happened to Cinderella after she married the prince? Have you ever asked yourself if it was really "happy ever after?" Actually, in this Victorian melodrama, it's not. 35-years-old Emily Fox-Seton, quite penniless and a little lonely, saves herself from becoming an old maid by agreeing to a marriage proposal from the marquess of Walderhurst, thus becoming "one of the richest Marchionesses in England". She is naïve, kind and good. She doesn't believe that people are really willing to hurt her, but why are all these strange accidents happening? This novel is divided into 2 parts. The first, "The Making Of A Marchioness" tells about the odd courtship of Emily and lord Walderhurst. The second part, "The Methods of Lady Walderhurst", most of the book, tells what happens after… This adult fairy tale, which, by mistakes, becomes a realistic novel, is a captivating book. I wish you all a wonderful reading. (Summary by Stav Nisser)

    I like Frances Hodgson Burnett Children’s book a lot but just a few months ago I discovered she had written adult books too and have been enjoying every book I have found of her so far. Narrator did a nice job!

    Oh! What a fascinating book. I had no idea that Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote such books for adults. I only knew the children’s books. Emily Fox-Seton is a lovely girl. And even though the descriptions of her constantly extolled her lovely character, it did not pall because, like everyone around her, a reader fell in love with her. And from the very unselfish way she showed love and respect to those around her, knew she should have to have good things come her way. So, when questioning things started happening to her, somehow you wished someone should come to protect her. It was very hard to put the book down...especially in the second part of the story. I would recommend the book highly, especially if you like period books. Keep the tissues near you in the last parts of the book! The person who narrated was just the person to read the book. She was able to keep interest as well as to speak in dialect and character. I would definitely listen to other books she has narrated.
