Looking for a quick, lighthearted audiobook just in time for your weekend drives to the beach?
While I certainly don’t wish for anyone to get stuck in beach traffic, it may be inevitable…so get your audiobooks ready!
My Mrs. Brown, by William Norwich, was a charming story of a hardworking, simple woman who comes across an Oscar de la Renta dress and is determined to buy one of her own. She wants to work for it, earn it: it/this is very important to her.
The people in her life do not understand how this one frivolous, extravagant purchase could be so important, but support Emilia Brown in her quest to save for it. When you finally find out the reason you will not be able to hold back the tears.
I enjoyed how this story developed. I myself did not understand Mrs. Brown at first, but loved her character that I was rooting for her to reach her goal. At the moment when it will all make sense I felt a sudden urge to hug someone. And, if you don’t know by now I am not a fan of hugs so that should tell you something. 😉
The narrator had a lovely tone and I found it easy to listen along. If you do not like audiobooks I still recommend picking up a copy of this book. I will certainly reread in the future and will be buying a physical copy for myself.
