    • 'Wonderfully narrated by Bessie Carter, I found myself magically transported to the Cotswold country house setting of Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love and immersing myself in the youthful aspirations of Fanny and her cousins. Nancy’s observations of an extended upper class family and their friends in the interwar years are beyond witty and wry. These, along with the amusing and surprisingly relatable stories of the girls through their teens and as young women kept me entertained through hours of travelling. I’m looking forward to catching up with the family again in Love in a Cold Climate and Don’t Tell Alfred!' - Frances, Audible Editor

    • 'One of the most heart-breaking and honest things that I have listened to in years. How Rob Delaney wrote this book and then narrated it sharing his family’s story moved me. It’s humourous and sad navigating the challenges that little Henry faces. Teaches to cherish every small moment and how to view the world when tragedy impacts those closest to you.' - Henry, Audible Staff

As long as it’s the type of (highly problematic) movie love she’s watched on repeat since she was little.

    • short listen | family road trip
    • 'Julia Donaldson’s tales never fail to bring the magic, and The Smeds and the Smoos is no exception. Aside from interweaving an important moral lesson – that no one should be treated differently based on how they look, their home or even what they eat – the story brims with imagination that the whole family will enjoy. From the Wurpular Wood filled with glompons and jerberrycoots to Planet Glurch covered in slime, this is a unifying story of friendship and acceptance.' - Jess, Audible Editor
