The Money Moon: A Romance


Read by Jeffery Farnol

(4.7 stars; 12 reviews)

Rejected in love, the incredibly rich (but appropriately modest) George Bellew walks into a small English village populated with a cast of most interesting people, from the ramrod straight old Sergeant who can't seem to get beyond talking of peaches with the apple of his eye, to the smarmy Mr. Cassilis who seems to think that the beautiful Anthea (and her farm at Dapplemere) can be had for the asking - if only he asks often enough. And then there is Anthea -- a lovely woman, caring for those around her - though full of cares herself - and too proud to accept help from anyone.

The characters are engaging and well drawn - and the mix and interplay of people make this a very fun book to listen to.

This is a solo recording by John Lieder and he does an excellent job crafting voices for the inhabitants of Mr. Bellew's Arcadia. He's easy to listen to and adds a spark to this lovely story. Review by ListeninginChicago for Internet Archive - 5.00 out of 5 stars. Cover design by Kathryn Delaney.

The Money Moon was published in 1911 and is remarkably fast-paced for a book of that era. It is full of good humor, and nothing happens in the way you expect. I loved it and I hope you will enjoy it, too. Translating a Librivox book to a Podio-book was ...

I loved this. Thanks for sharing it. The scene with Adam before the auction started made me laugh out loud. It is a wonder to hear a story written 100 years ago and still be able to enjoy it so much.

Thanks, Nelline! Thanks, cynikat! I agree with all you have said. I remembered the phrase "because why" from this book because I'm hearing it in others from the same era. I thought it was just Adam's catch phrase.
