    Story
    "Brilliant Audio Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed this story which is told in turn by different characters which I loved. I have read the paperback years ago but this reading with the excellent narration by a male and a female really brought it to life. I can't recommed highly enough if you like historical novels.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narration.


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

    Madame D'Auby lost her mind. "Cracked" as the book says.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!
