BEST FOOT FORWARD A 500-Mile Walk Through Hidden France

by | Read by Anne Day-Jones

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Narrator Anne Day-Jones makes listeners feel as if they're climbing and trudging in Englishwoman Susie Kelly's footsteps as she treks solo from La Rochelle to Lake Geneva, France. While Kelly is on the road, a total stranger, Jennifer Shields, keeps Kelly's farmhouse and animals content. Jones delivers Shields's Texas drawl as accurately as she does the book's myriad French, English, and other international accents. Best, however, is her delivery of Kelly's warm descriptions of the flora and fauna along her journey as well as fascinating historical facts. Adding to the spirit of the trip, Jones captures Kelly's gentle humor and stories of the kind--and creepy--people she met. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
