Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Wanda McCaddon

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

A dynamic performance by Wanda McCaddon brings the real Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle, to life in this marvelous audiobook. Whether she’s describing catastrophic events or everyday occurrences in the lives of the Carnarvons, McCaddon delivers. She captures the essence of Lady Catherine and her family and friends and infuses each of them—and there are many— with individuality as they unfold in her accomplished presentation. Listeners hear Winston Churchill’s booming voice and Lady Catherine’s subtly nuanced expressions as if they’re privy to their real-life conversations. McCaddon’s engaging portraits of the characters will have listeners waiting for the next installment in this riveting social history of a time and place we’ll never see the likes of again. E.E.S.
