Biography & Memoir • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This audiobook shifts between two narrators, Lisa Flanagan and Imogen Church, who portray Adele Astaire and the young dancer she takes under her wing, Violet Wood. The story opens in the 1920s, when Adele and her brother, Freddie, establish a dancing act. Later, Adele meets Violet and becomes her mentor. Both women are fearless and determined, and as their friendship grows, they learn to juggle fame, love, and loss amid the devastation of war. The narration and production of this audiobook are outstanding. Both narrators capture the characters. Listeners will feel like they've become part of Adele's story.
