MADAME RESTELL The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Old New York's Most Fabulous, Fearless, and Infamous Abortionist

by | Read by Mara Wilson

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Mara Wilson's engaging, lyrical voice is a suitable match for Jennifer Wright's biography. In pre-Gilded Age New York City, Madame Restell was a healer and chemist who created and provided reliable birth control and abortion solutions for women who needed help. Wilson deftly navigates the serious medical information and evokes empathy for women who need to end pregnancy for a variety of reasons. Restell was not always well liked but still managed to create a fortune for herself and help countless women. With its quotes from newspapers and journals of the time, this audio provides listeners with much to learn and enjoy. C.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
