    Story
    (177)

    Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again. Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks.

    Karen says: "Alternate title for "The House at Riverton""

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

    Absolutely. Intriguing storyline that makes you want to keep listening


    What other book might you compare The Shifting Fog to and why?

    Any Kate Morton book.


    If you could take any character from The Shifting Fog out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Grace - she held so many secrets. I don't think dinner would make her talk!! Maybe she will talk about the downstair,


    Any additional comments?

    Interestingly, The House at Riverton is EXACTLY the same book - just a different title.

    In Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, novelist Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife, two of the most compelling figures in American history.

    Ronna says: "A different , authentic view of history!!"
    "Good history"

    Story
    Where does Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book rates in the upper 3/4 of my listening


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker?

    History - the freedom of slaves, at least for a while! Also the friendship that was formed between a very lonely person and her dependable dressmaker.


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

    A very good reader that makes you want to listen more. Her ability to emphasize important information but also to have a kindness and empathy in her voice.


    If you could take any character from Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elizabeth - I would like to learn her art from her, but also just sit and ask questions and listen to her experiences.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the author does her history research and homework very well before she starts writing.
