21 Aldgate | [Patricia Friedberg]

21 Aldgate

When young Clara Simon quit her job in Ernest Maxwell Abbott's law firm over his increasingly shabby treatment of Jewish clients, she soon realized the seriousness of her actions. Giving up any job in post-WWI London meant taking a chance. Clara knew her family at 21 Aldgate would not be supportive. A coincidental meeting resulted in a job offer in Chelsea. Clara, reluctant to consider venturing into affluent Chelsea, finally agreed to meet with the important French artist, Paul Maze, who needed an assistant to help write his memoir. Their working relationship ignited a passionate love.

    Story
    "If you can get passed the narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I would not unless I knew the person was familiar with European history.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice was not appropriate for male characters and her foreign accents left a lot to be desired.


    If you could take any character from 21 Aldgate out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Paul, because he sounds like he has a lot of interesting stories to tell.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I would have enjoyed reading the boom more than listening to the audio version.
