    New York Times best-selling author Philippa Gregory presents a new and unique view of one of history's most intriguing, romantic, and maddening heroines. Biographers often neglect the captive years of Mary Queen of Scots, who trusted Queen Elizabeth's promise of sanctuary when she fled from rebels in Scotland and then found herself imprisoned as the "guest" of George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury and his indomitable wife, Bess of Hardwick.

    Story

    I have now read all of Philippa Gregory's "Tudor" Series and loved, loved them all!! Each book gives great insight into each character and the time period. Philippa Gregory is an outstanding writer!!! The narration was great and puts you in the time period as you listen. Narrators didn't lose my attention!! Great Book!!

    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    Story

    This is by far the BEST book I have ever read!! I can't believe I haven't read it before now and that it wasn't required reading in school/college!!! Hugo's writing style took a little getting use. Julie Rose's translation was great and Guidall's narration was great!!! The story was overwhelming!!! I absolutely couldn't quit listening - even though some of the "history" was long but by the end of the book it was so well worth it!!! Now that I am finished, I feel like I have lost a friend - what will I do w/myself!!! Even though this is so long, you WILL NOT regret spending your time with a story and characters who will make you look at life in a different way. This is a book I will never, ever forget!!
