MEET THE FRUGALWOODS Achieving Financial Independence Through Simple Living

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ann Marie Gideon

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Ann Marie Gideon warmly delivers author Thames's encouraging call to create a deep sense of fulfillment by living frugally. In this enlightening and entertaining narrative, Thames explains how working the 9-to-5 grind in urban Cambridge, Massachusetts, inspired her to let go of everything that was not deeply important to her and pursue a simpler life. Gideon's narration is authentic, capturing Thames's touching reaction when she realizes she has found her dream home and the humorous confusion during her labor pains. Gideon's blend of enthusiasm and a down-to-earth-tone conveys Thames's rich descriptions and sobering observations on societal values, which underscore Thames's inspiring message about spending less and craving less. An informational and rewarding listening experience. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
