Publisher's Summary

It is 1842 and Maria Merryweather, a 13-year-old orphan is on her journey to the mysterious Moonacre Manor. There she finds herself in a crumbling house of secrets and mystery in a world caught up in time. Maria discovers that she is the last Moon Princess and she has only until the next full moon to undo the misdeeds of her ancestors and save the Moonacre estate from disappearing forever. Although she is aided by a stable of wonderful characters and magical beasts, it is only by self-sacrifice and perseverance that she will be able to succeed. And of course, with a good pinch of magic, Maria is able to save Moonacre, right the wrongs, reunite lost loves and finally bring peace to the valley.
Read by Juliet Stevenson who plays Miss Heliotrope in the 2008 movie based on the book The Secret of Moonacre.

Abridged too far

What a pity that this book is short on content and form. I remember it being read to me, when I was 10, and it literally enchanted me! Every word had meaning and painted a portrait of the persons, their adventures, their surroundings. You could almost see the book. This quality is totally gone, so has the magic. The storyline is followed drudgingly and grudgungly, with omission of all personal talking to,other persons and sometimes themselves. Never boring. It gave cachet, brilliance and humour to the tale told.
Indeed a grave mistake. A great pity also of Stevenson's very suitable soft voice. Two birds with clipped wings, the book and the narrator.

Thank you for this!

Thank you so much for having this audiobook in! I have always loved the Little White Horse, and I'm so happy it's available for the blind. The abridgement worked very well.

Pity it's too short!

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and Juliet Stevenson is one of my favourite readers. 'The Little White Horse' is one of my favourite children's books - so what a wonderful match! Sadly the abridgement is not brilliant, and I just wish there was a recording of JS reading the entire book....

Most disappointing. Much of the beauty of this book has been cut out only leaving the bare story I would rather wait to give a child the complete book

excellent adaptation of a childhood favourite

I can only wish that this wasn't a full version of the book! Juliet Stevenson spoke brilliantly and with emotions to match what was happening.
