LOVE & SAFFRON A Novel of Friendship, Food, and Love

by | Read by Kimberly Farr, Cassandra Campbell, Mark Bramhall, Maggi-Meg Reed, Kim Fay [Note]

Historical Fiction • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrators Kimberly Farr and Cassandra Campbell perform most of this epistolary novel, and they couldn't be better. Imogen's column in Seattle's NORTHWEST HOME & LIFE inspires Joan in L.A. to send a fan letter, along with a packet of saffron from her travels. In time, their correspondence grows into a close friendship. Farr gives Imogen a genial gentility. We hear a cheerful smile behind her words. Campbell captures Joan's youth and enthusiasm, as well as her genuine delight whenever she hears from Imogen. Mark Bramhall depicts Imogen's husband, Francis, as a soft-spoken man. Maggie-Meg Reed handles the narration in Part II of the novel. Filled with friendship, love, and deep emotions, this audiobook is comfort food for difficult times.
