    From the best-selling author of Lucia, Lucia comes a novel about an Italian family living in Roseto, Pennsylvania. The eldest daughter, Nella, is ambitious and determined to make a life for herself far away from the rigors of farm and factory life. But then she meets and falls in love with a handsome carefree poet, Renato Lanzara, the son of the town restaurateur.

    What made the experience of listening to The Queen of the Big Time the most enjoyable?

    This was an easy choice because I LOVE Adriana Trigiani's books (Very Valentine one of my personal favorites) and Cassandra Campbell, who I discovered when I listened to The Help, so I search for books that she's done these days!

    The characters are well developed and she draws the readers into their lives...got emotionally invested in this wonderful story - laughed, cried, felt anger at times...worth keeping in my library for a long time to come.

    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. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "ONCE YOU START, YOU WON'T STOP"
    Overall

    It's been ages since I had time to read or lsiten to a novel and ages since I've found words so captivating...poignent storyline with narrators who lend substance to its characters.

    I'm a single parent, working full time and taking Anatomy, too, so I don't have time to stop; however, listening to this audio book has been an escape for me - once I started listening to it, I couldn't stop - I've listened to it in the car, at work and laying in bed at night - FABULOUS!

    Can't wait until Stockett's next book!

    P.S. The narrators are so wonderful - much better than the monotone narrators I've heard before - they can really affect my interest level, regardless of the plot - A+

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "A Compilation of Many Spiritual Teachings"
    Overall

    I'm not so sure that I buy into the whole "be open to receiving, put it out there and it will arrive at my front door" and other implied promises in The Secret. However, I do prefer listening to this book over reading heavy historical material that sells hell fire and damnation over unconditional love!
