Everybody's Lonesome


Read by Bridget Gaige

(4.3 stars; 20 reviews)

Twenty-year-old Mary Alice is bored with her home life and envious of the beautiful, poised, popular girls she sees at parties. At her mother's advice, she reluctantly visits her Godmother in New York, who teaches Mary Alice a little homemade "magic" and the one great Secret that will put her at ease with other people. How can Mary Alice learn to use these gifts to bring happiness into her own life and other lives? Although this charming novelette is subtitled "A True Fairy Story," it reveals that most of the "magic" in life can be found within ourselves. (Introduction by Jan MacGillivray) (1 hr 29 min)

Reviews

Good book


(5 stars)

Great short book with a wise moral. The reader did a wonderful job.

Sweet story


(4 stars)

This is a sweet little story and a nice diversion from the day to day. I might be a bit dense, but for most of the book I thought "the secret" was something else and didn't catch on until the last chapter. Bridget reads this solo very well.
