    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners.

    Abeline is the type of woman from whom you could learn valuable life lessons, just by sitting across the table from her having

    My first Audible read...I'm hooked!
