    What made the experience of listening to The Duchess the most enjoyable?

    Ms.McCaddon's command of French and her narration, was of great benefit in reading "The Duchess." It takes a while but, once your hooked, your hooked. Wonderful history lesson.
    Thank you Ms Foreman!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Duchess?

    When the Duchess and sister Harrietta are canvassing votes for Mr. Fox.


    Have you listened to any of Wanda McCaddon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Ms. McCaddon before.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would say READ the Book FIRST! Then watch the movie for the costume design.

  • The Language of Flowers: A Novel

    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    The gathering of moss for the crib and where Victoria goes with ...(don't want to give it away)

    No, have not listened to Ms. Sands, but enjoyed her Victoria voice, very believable.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Language of Flowers and why?

    Elizabeth, because like many a mother, she wasn't perfect.
