    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is beautifully written!


    What other book might you compare A Quiet Belief in Angels to and why?

    A dark version of an Alice Hoffman book that is full of descriptions that pull you into the scene. More like literature than Ellory's usual crime novels.


    What does Mark Bramhall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice could not be more perfect for this novel. I could visualize the characters exactly like he describes them.


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

    The entire book was very moving. From the tragedy of the murderers, to the fire, to the lifes that we're forever changed. The teacher who recognized unusual talent and encouraged and supported the shy boy. It is a very dark story and sad yet so beautifully written I am glad I listened to it.

    Shanghai, 1912. Violet Minturn is the privileged daughter of the American madam of the city's most exclusive courtesan house. But when the Ching dynasty is overturned, Violet is separated from her mother in a cruel act of chicanery and forced to become a "virgin courtesan." Half-Chinese and half-American, Violet grapples with her place in the worlds of East and West - until she is able to merge her two halves, empowering her to become a shrewd courtesan who excels in the business of seduction and illusion, though she still struggles to understand who she is.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Christopher Barnes says: "D*mn near flawless"
