Reviews

Praise for the Audiobook Edition of "The American Heiress: " "Beautifully narrated by Claire Corbett... a special and utterly engaging audiobook experience." --AudioFile Magazine "Dripping with acerbic affectation and perfect British and Newport upper-crust accents, Katherine Kellgren deliciously portrays wealthy, beautiful, naive Cora Cash...This story is filled with a full cast of unlikeable characters...Kellgren delivers each perfectly and convincingly conveys the worst that lack of character has to offer on both sides of the pond." --AudioFile Magazine on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress "Ketherine Kellgren, a truly accomplished voice actress, affects a la-di-da intercontinental accent for the narration of this puree of Edith Wharton, 'Downtown Abbey' and pulp romance." --The Washington Post on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress "This audiobook is full of historical detail about the lives of the rich and famous at the turn of the last century, from fashion and food to living spaces and manners. I think I listened to the descriptions of Cora's Parisian-made trousseau about five or six times so that I could picture each sumptuous, amazing gown clearly in my mind." --Star-Telegram on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress "This audio presentation, narrated by Katherine Kellgren, who moves with effortless authenticity from the haughty Mayfair drawl of the Prince of Wales to the self-important, Southern tinged cadences of a rich American society matron, is bound to top the list of super-summer-beach listens." --BookPage on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress "The characters are varied and lively and brought to life skillfully by narrator Katherine Kellgren. Those who read Daphne de Maurier and other authors in the genre will enjoy this title. Recommended." --Library Journal on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress "From the first plummy tones of Katherine Kellgren's voice, you know you're in for a guilty pleasure...This is 'Upstairs/Downstairs, ' 'The Age of Innocence' and 'Downton Abbey' rolled into one." --The Winston-Salem Journal on the Audiobook Edition of The American Heiress Beautifully narrated by Claire Corbett a special and utterly engaging audiobook experience.
