THE BOOKSELLER'S SECRET A Novel of Nancy Mitford and WWII

by | Read by Eleanor Caudill

Historical Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

In this novel, two women, both middle-aged novelists, share aspirations, personal struggles, and frustrations--though they are separated by eight decades. Narrator Eleanor Caudill brings to life the fictional contemporary writer Katie Cabot, who is living in London while searching for literary inspiration. She is the quintessential American, and in Caudill's voice we hear her naïveté, optimism, and effervescent personality. A parallel narrative explores real-life novelist Nancy Mitford's experience working in a London bookshop during WWII. Narrating this sequence with numerous English literary figures, the notorious Mitford relations, and one charming French colonel challenges Caudill's skills. This audiobook would have benefited from multiple narrators. Still, hearing this story is a treat for book lovers. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
