Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 58 reviews)

The novel carries forward the continuing story of the three cousins Louise Merrick, Beth De Graf, and Patsy Doyle, and their circle. The title is somewhat misleading; it could more accurately have been called Aunt Jane's Nieces in Politics. (Uncle John Merrick tells his nieces that politics is "work," which yields the title.)

The story begins three days after the end of the previous book, Aunt Jane's Nieces at Millville; the freckled and red-haired Patsy still sports a sunburn from her summer in the Adirondacks. She and Louise have received letters from their "cousin" Kenneth Forbes, the young man who inherited Aunt Jane's estate in the first book of the series. Kenneth has become involved in politics: he is running as the Republican candidate for the local seat in the New York State legislature, but thinks he is going to lose to his opponent. The family decide to go all out to help Kenneth win the election... (Summary by Wikipedia) (5 hr 11 min)

Enjoyable Story

(5 stars)

Fun and Sweet story with Great Readers, except chapter 17, I had to listen to it twice to understand what was said, the second time I used the speed adjuster to make the voice faster and clearer. The ending of the story could have been more lengthy. But all in all I really enjoyed it.

easy listening

(3.5 stars)

Another nice story. A couple of the readers weren't as interesting as the others.

Great book!

(5 stars)

Very well read... Wish there was more to the ending!
