    Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm at the age of 14 after the accidental death of her father. Forced to become a maid at the boarding house of her Aunt Augustine in Marseilles, Simone's life is hard and impoverished. But one of her aunt's boarders, the beautiful Camille Casal, a star at the local music hall, gives Simone a dream: that one day she too will be a famous singer and dancer.

    After having listened to Silver Wattle, Tuscan Rose and Wildflower Hill I was so looking forward to this book, but contrary to the other reviewers I couldn't stand the narrator's voice - especially for Simone - and couldn't even finish listening to it. Compared to the other books, I found the story didn't keep my interest. I hardly ever actually write a review - just use the star system - but this one...oh my...not in my top ten.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    I didn't think I'd ever enjoy a "war book" being a girly-girl - but this is so much more - simply one of the best books I've ever listened to. Character development was supreme and the story - because it's true - even more amazing. The narrator was first class. I high recommend this book!

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    Right from the beginning I knew I wouldn't be able to put this one down! I had just finished Smash Cut and this one was even better! And I love Victor Slezak's narrating.

    The murder of Paul Wheeler has all the elements of a blockbuster: family rivalries, incalculable wealth, and a prominent man dying in the arms of his beautiful mistress. It's a case that could earn Derek Mitchell even greater star power. When the Wheeler family approaches him about defending Creighton for his uncle's murder -- even before he's charged -- he jumps at the chance.

    Scott says: "Bad Guy With Interesting Hobby"
    "Great read!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book (except for the part about the dog) and would recommend it to anyone who likes interesting twists, a great narrator and suspense right up to the end!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "One of the best!"
    Overall

    I absolutely loved this book...the different characters narrated by different people made this book come alive for me. I had a knot in my belly the whole book...holding my breath as the characters did and I couldn't "put it down!"
