    Charlotte owns a Birmingham bridal boutique. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress - or feel certain she should marry Tim? Then Charlotte purchases a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new, shimmering with pearls and satin, hand stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress.

    I wish I had have known before I bought it. I stopped listening after the 10th mention of prayer and God. I have no problem with anyone listening to whatever type of literature they want I just wish I'd known before I wasted my credit.

    Eve Williams is about to discover just how the other half really live. Above stairs: Lord Netherwood keeps his considerable fortune ticking over with the profits from his three coal mines in the vicinity. It's just as well the coal is of the highest quality as the upkeep of Netherwood Hall, his splendid estate on the outskirts of town, doesn't come cheap. Below stairs: Eve Williams, is the wife of one of Lord Netherwood's most stalwart employees. Suddenly, her ordered existence amid the terraced rows of the miners' houses is brought crashing down....

    Story

    I absolutely loved this story. The characters are engaging, the story is well formed and the narrator is spot on. I didn't want it to end. I am SO glad there will be a sequel.

    In her 20s, Emily Watson was on top of the world: she had a best-selling novel, a husband plucked from the pages of GQ, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after. Ten years later, the tide has turned on Emily's good fortune. So when her great-Aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, Emily accepts, longing to be healed by the sea. Researching her next book, Emily discovers a red velvet diary, dated 1943, whose contents reveal startling connections to her own life. The Violets of March announces Sarah Jio as a writer to watch.

    Story

    Really lame. Couldn't be bothered even finishing this one. The narrator's performance was good but the story and the characters lacked substance.

    Story

    Daughter of the Duke of Milan and wife of the conniving Count Girolamo Riario, Caterina Sforza was the bravest warrior Renaissance Italy ever knew. She ruled her own lands, fought her own battles, and openly took lovers whenever she pleased. Her remarkable tale is told by her lady-in-waiting, Dea, a woman knowledgeable in reading the "triumph cards", the predecessor of modern-day Tarot.

    Amazon Customer says: "An Unfortunate Sideshow"
    "Grocery list"
    Overall

    This narrator sounds like she is reading a grocery list instead of telling a tale. Seems like she can't get to the end of the book quick enough and with as little emotion as possible
