    There is an old, empty house in Devil's Cleave, a deep gorge that leads from the high moors down to the harbour village of Hollow Bay. The house is Crickley Hall and it's large and grim, somehow foreboding. It's rumoured to be haunted. It's thought to hold a secret. Despite some reservations, the Caleighs move in, searching for respite in this beautiful part of North Devon, seeking peace and perhaps to come to terms with what's happened to them as a family. But all is not well with the house....

    Story

    Not the suspenseful, spine-tingling story I was hoping for but entertaining nonetheless. The narration was generally good. The most dissatisfying part was needing to constantly adjust the volume because the narration swings back and forth between normal conversational volume and whispering.

    From Pasadena to Cambridge to New York, Washington, D.C., India, Ceylon, Paris, Marseilles, Santa Barbara, and Maine, Bob Spitz re-creates an extraordinary life. He takes us beyond the image of Julia as the tall, eccentric woman with a funny voice who taught America how to cook, to establish her as a genuine rebel and beloved icon, a woman who redefined herself in middle age, helped to change the role of women in America, set the standard for how to create a public personality in the modern media world.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dearie?

    The moment when Julia and Jacques discuss the drawbacks of the Cuisinart food processor.


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Farr – was your favorite?

    I like the way Kimberly Farr performed Julia. Rather than trying to impersonate Julia, Kimberly voiced her in a way that captured Julia's spirit and personality.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was particularly moved by Julia's farewell to La Pitchoune.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Kimberly Farr's narration of this book. She was very natural, expressive without being melodramatic, and adjusted her tone and rhythm to suit the storyline.
