    Story
    (5371)

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    If you could sum up Beautiful Ruins in three words, what would they be?

    I highly recommend!


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

    This was the first time I've listened to Edoardo Ballerini's audio - I have found that a reader can ruin the audio and this was not the case. Edoardo's voice captured each character's personality and his italian accent, wow.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    great performance by Mr. Ballerini.

    Brooke O'Connor - elegant, self-possessed, and kind - has a happy marriage and a deeply loved young daughter. So her adamant refusal to have a second child confounds her husband, Sean. When Brooke's high school boyfriend, Alex - now divorced and mourning the death of his young son - unexpectedly resurfaces, Sean begins to suspect an affair. For 15 years Brooke has kept a shameful secret from everyone she loves. Only Alex knows the truth that drove them apart. His reappearance now threatens the life she has so carefully constructed and fortified by denial

    Story
    Would you listen to The Lost Daughter again? Why?

    Definitely! Cassandra Campbell is one of my favorite narrators. She brought the characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Daughter?

    When Brooke saw her lost daughter for the first time.


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

    her talent of bringing each character to life - the polish accents and Nashda's difficulties in talking because of her disability.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Lost Daughter and why?

    They were all memorable, from Brooke to her husband Sean and their daughter Megan. Nashda of course and her family. I loved them all.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audio, I will definitely listen to it again.
