Buyer beware!!

Any additional comments?

Listeners should be aware that this version has been taken from a free public domain recording that was never intended to be sold. It is available at Librivox . org for free. The publishers have taken it from that site and had no part in its production. I recorded it for LibriVox, not for Audible. Elizabeth Klett

Awesome was like a bystander

Mostly a documentary of culture of the elite rich in New York in the 19th century. The love they had for each other but the life they were not allowed to live together.

This was a fascinating historical book by Ms. Wharton and it really shows the reader all the ins and outs of the way things where back then. It is the wonderful voice of narrator Elizabeth Klett that really brings New York and all the characters alive in the book, I don't think it is a book I would have ever read but listening to Ms. Klett narrate this book brought me into New York like I was a bystander, watching it all happen that was so cool, thank you!
