Emily Fox-Seton


Read by Caroline Driggs

(4.8 stars; 342 reviews)

Have you ever wondered what happened to Cinderella after she married the prince? Have you ever asked yourself if it was really "happy ever after?" Actually, in this Victorian melodrama, it's not. 35-years-old Emily Fox-Seton, quite penniless and a little lonely, saves herself from becoming an old maid by agreeing to a marriage proposal from the marquess of Walderhurst, thus becoming "one of the richest Marchionesses in England". She is naïve, kind and good. She doesn't believe that people are really willing to hurt her, but why are all these strange accidents happening? This novel is divided into 2 parts. The first, "The Making Of A Marchioness" tells about the odd courtship of Emily and lord Walderhurst. The second part, "The Methods of Lady Walderhurst", most of the book, tells what happens after… This adult fairy tale, which, by mistakes, becomes a realistic novel, is a captivating book. I wish you all a wonderful reading. (Summary by Stav Nisser) (7 hr 27 min)

A good read indeed and beautifully read. Thank you Caroline

an engaging story!

(5 stars)

Quite a nice listen! A very well-read and entertaining story. Kept me coming back to the story, wondering what course of action Emily would take in response the the challenges she faced. Listening made my usually long, dull work hours at the sandblaster fly by painlessly:) Thank you Ms Driggs! Pls read some more!

A good read

(5 stars)

This was a nice story I really enjoyed it. There were times when I did get a bit frustrated with Emily for being so darn nice, I hated seeing her niceness being exploited. The narrator was beyond fabulous, she has a lovely voice that so appropriately suits this story. A nice sweet story, enjoy!

Caroline Driggs gives a professional, heart-felt reading of this tender story... that has an edge. Burnett was a literary craftsman who is unfairly dismissed as merely a writer of sentimental kids' stories. Thank you Caroline. More please. TheBookworm (Manchester, UK)

A story well-read

(5 stars)

"Emily Fox-Seton" is interesting and moves along well (although Emily is a bit too nice!) The story was beautifully read with just the right amount of feeling and emotion.

wonderful

Well read and wonderfully written. Burnett is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors.

Very well read, although the story ending fizzles a bit.
