Katherine Mansfield accomplishes an incredible drama with detailed characterization in ´´Miss Brill´´, a story only four pages long, written in the early 1920´s. The main character is a lonely spinster, probably an elderly Englishwoman, living in a resort area of France near the seashore, earning enough to support herself by tutoring English children and reading the newspapers to an old invalid whose ability to hear and comprehend are questionable. She sits on a bench at the park and creates fantasy scenarios involving the people around her, enhanced by her eavesdropping skills. The simple plot is enriched with symbolism, word selection, and limited omniscient point of view, and emerges as a masterwork. Ann M. Richardson is an Audible-approved narrator, who has worked with many publishers including Oasis Audio, Harper Audio, PostHypnotic Press, and Audible. Her clear narration style and empathetic delivery put the listener right inside the story with the characters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ann Richardson.

In 1894, Laura Ingalls Wilder, her husband, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose, packed their belongings into their covered wagon and set out on a journey from De Smet, South Dakota, to Mansfield, Missouri. They heard that the soil there was rich and the crops were bountiful -- it was even called ´´the Land of the Big Red Apple.´´ With hopes of beginning a new life, the Wilders made their way to the Ozarks of Missouri. During their journey, Laura kept a detailed diary of events: the cities they passed through, the travelers they encountered on the way, the changing countryside and the trials of an often difficult voyage. Laura´s words, preserved in this book, reveal her inner thoughts as she traveled with her family in search of a new home in Mansfield, where Rose would spend her childhood, where Laura would write her Little House books, and where she and Almanzo would remain all the rest of their happy days together.
