Marie Antoinette : the journey by Antonia Fraser( Sound Recording )
16 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 534 libraries worldwide
France's beleaguered queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake," was the subject of ridicule and curiosity even before her death; she has since been the object of debate and speculation and the fascination so often accorded tragic figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted, privileged, but otherwise unremarkable child was thrust into an unparalleled time and place, and was commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in history. Antonia Fraser's lavish and engaging portrait of Marie Antoinette, one of the most recognizable women in European history, excites compassion and regard for all aspects of her subject, immersing the listener not only in the coming-of-age of a graceful woman, but also in the unraveling of an era

"Cranky but lovable sleuth Agatha Raisin's detective agency has become so successful that she wants nothing more than to take quality time for rest and relaxation. But as soon as she begins closing the agency on weekends, she remembers that when she has plenty of quality time, she doesn't know what to do with it. So it doesn't take much for the vicar of a nearby village to persuade her to help publicize the church fete--especially when the fair's organizer, George Selby, turns out to be a gorgeous widower. Agatha brings out the crowds for the fete, all right, but there's more going on than innocent village fun. Several of the offerings in the jam-tasting booth turn out to be poisoned, and the festive family event becomes the scene of two murders. Along with her young and (much to her dismay) pretty sidekick, Toni, Agatha must uncover the truth behind the jam tampering, keep the church funds safe from theft, and expose the nasty secrets lurking in the village--all while falling for handsome George, who may have secrets of his own"--Publisher's wbe site

And when a woman staying in the same hotel as Agatha and James is murdered, Agatha's notoriously prickly demeanor soon gets her into trouble--as she's quite quickly pegged as the prime suspect. If Agatha can't solve the murder in time, she'll be meddling in all her future cases from the inside of a prison cell!
Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen( Sound Recording )

"Sense and sensibility" is the story of an English family of sisters who are turned out of their family home by the laws of primogeniture. They must seek their fortunes through advantageous matches. Elinor Dashwood represents "sense" among the sisters, embodying moderation and prudence. Her sister Marianne represents "sensibility," a susceptibility to feelings that causes her much pain but also opens her up to the richness of love. Jane Austen's acute observations of differences in class and wealth, as well as her sharp mocking wit, helps her to limn her memorable characters as they find their way towards mates who will be true, frank, and honest with them. The sisters' experiences, both good and bad, leave them the wiser and ourselves much the richer
