Publisher's Summary

Davenport House is the first book in a family saga following the wealthy Davenports and their servants in 1915 America.
Mary Davenport is a 22-year-old idealist who worries that the world in the Progressive Era is leaving her behind. She lives isolated in the Pennsylvania countryside with her affluent and secretive family. When her father dies suddenly, Mary becomes pained with grief and increasingly suspicious of those around her.
A humble servant girl has the chance of a lifetime to become a lady's companion. Costly dresses, exquisite rooms, and fine dinners are pleasant distractions from what is really happening in the house.

Hard to listen to...

What would have made Davenport House better?

I only got a few chapters into this book before I gave up listening to it. As other reviewers stated, the story is so stilted it was quickly frustrating.


Would you ever listen to anything by Marie Silk again?

Doubtful


How did the narrator detract from the book?

She has a pleasant voice and may be better with a different book. I had to stop listening because of all the "said Mary", "said Mrs. Davenport" etc. I found this very annoying..


Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

This story grows on you!

At first I was not sure that I would finish the book, but the story kept getting more interesting,so I needed to know who did it! I also liked it that the chapters were not long, and I could stop in between chapters. I appreciate the fact that there is no crude, offensive or vulgar language, thank you Marie! I definitely would like to listen to the rest of the series!

Allyson Voller did an excellent job narrating this story. She has a very clear and pleasant voice and her female character interpretations are amazing!

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!
