Description
An early work from the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars and the forthcoming Someone Else's Shoes, Jojo Moyes, the story of a young woman who opens an eclectic shop and comes to terms with the secrets of her past.
In the sixties, Athene Forster was the most glamorous girl of her generation. Nicknamed the Last Deb, she was also beautiful, spoiled, and out of control. When she agreed to marry the gorgeous young heir Douglas Fairley-Hulme, her parents breathed a sigh of relief. But within two years, rumors had begun to circulate about Athene's affair with a young salesman.
Thirty-five years later, Suzanna Peacock is struggling with her notorious mother's legacy. The only place Suzanna finds comfort is in The Peacock Emporium, the beautiful coffee bar and shop she opens that soon enchants her little town. There she makes perhaps the first real friends of her life, including Alejandro, a male midwife, escaping his own ghosts in Argentina.
The specter of her mother still haunts Suzanna. But only by confronting both her family and her innermost self will she finally reckon with the past—and discover that the key to her history, and her happiness, may have been in front of her all along.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Restless Suzanna Peacock has always hoped that her next venture--her marriage or her high living in London or, now, her new shop in the town where she grew up--would bring her perfect fulfillment. Her tribulations are spoken by Judith Boyd, who turns this novel into a stellar dramatic reading. We expect a narrator to deliver different voices and sound ranges, and sometimes a tone that describes the places on the pages, but this narrator lets you know at the beginning that you have entered a special arena. You know when she announces each chapter that she is figuratively drawing back a stage curtain and inviting you to enter the novel with her. This is the way excellence sounds. J.P.

      • content: Elizabeth Sastre narrates with Christine Rendel and Fabio Tassone as they deliver the complicated story of Suzanna Peacock. Blessed and cursed to be the daughter of the scandalous Athene Fairley-Hulme, Suzanna finds that the only place she can be herself is in her own coffee bar. Sastre delivers a compelling performance as she takes on the emotions and concerns of the complicated Fairley-Hulme family, as well as the voices of residents in the farming town where Suzanna lives. Sastre's delivery keeps this audiobook experience upbeat even in moments of darkness, while Rendel and Tassone take on the roles of the more inwardly focused characters.
