    Susan Elia MacNeal introduced the remarkable Maggie Hope in her acclaimed debut, Mr. Churchill's Secretary. Now Maggie returns to protect Britain's beloved royals against an international plot - one that could change the course of history. As World War II sweeps the continent and England steels itself against German attack, Maggie Hope, former secretary to Prime Minister Winston Churchill, completes her training to become a spy for MI-5.

    What would have made Princess Elizabeth's Spy better?

    Honestly, I could not tell you anything about this book because the narrator was sooo horrible. I loved the first Maggie Hope book, and was really looking forward to this one but could not make it through the first hour of the book. The narrator had a habit of ending sentences on a higher note almost like she was asking a question or announcing an award. This is really ineffective when you are try to talk about a serious or sombre subject. She was terrible with the different voices, and listening to her was .....painful. I am normally not so negative, and have suffered through so-so and below par narration because the story was good. This however, was intolerable.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going to listen to Firebird but can't wait for My Heart's Own Blood and the Century Trilogy Book #3.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    NEVER!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Couldn't tell - the narration was too bad to get that far.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Cheryl Strayed again?

    Never! This might just be the worst book I have ever read or listened to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wild?
