That Mother-in-Law of Mine

Read by Crln Yldz Ksr

(4.5 stars; 37 reviews)

Here we were, only a month married, and spending our honeymoon at a most charming summer resort, where there was no excuse for getting out of patience. Everything was beautiful and attractive: Little hotel, strange to say, quite delightful; no fault to find with surroundings and accommodations; my darling Bessie, as sweet as an angel and determined to be happy and to make me happy; everything, in short, calculated to give us a long summer of delight.

That is, if Bessie had only been an orphan. But there was her mother, who had joined us on our summer trip, after the first two weeks of unalloyed happiness, and threatened to accompany us through life. (excerpt from chapter 1) (2 hr 40 min)

Very nice - not what I expected

(4 stars)

I had expected a more wicked mother-in-law or a more wicked son-in-law. But instead it was a very nice story of what could be a real-life conflict and struggle to live with a very proper yet controlling woman. I liked it!

Re: pronunciation mentioned in previous review

(0 stars)

That's one of the fun parts of listening to ESL readers! "Anonymous" probably has a similar pronunciation in the reader's native language.

(5 stars)

A lively, lovely, funny tale! It is a shame the author is not known. Very well written and narrated.

(5 stars)

Oh the Mother-in-law......been there? This one has a happy ending. Sure hope yours did too.

Nice easy story

(5 stars)

As usual b a great narrative by Caroline

(5 stars)

A delightful story, well worth listening to. The only negative point is the mispronounced words, other than that the reader was great.

Never hear 'anonymous' pronounced as 'ana-nigh-mus'.
