The Foundling: From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Familiars Audiobook

The Foundling: From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Familiars

Author: Stacey Halls Narrator: Hattie Morahan, Laura Aikman Release Date: February 2020

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Familiars Two women from different worlds. And a secret that will change everything . . . London, 1754. Six years after leaving her illegitimate daughter Clara at London's Foundling Hospital, Bess Bright returns to reclaim the child she has never known. Dreading the worst - that Clara has died in care - the last thing she expects to hear is that her daughter has already been reclaimed - by her. Her life is turned upside down as she tries to find out who has taken her little girl - and why. Less than a mile from Bess' lodgings in the city, in a quiet, gloomy townhouse on the edge of London, a young widow has not left the house in a decade. When her close friend - an ambitious young doctor at the Foundling Hospital - persuades her to hire a nursemaid for her daughter, she is hesitant to welcome someone new into her home and her life. But her past is threatening to catch up with her and tear her carefully constructed world apart. 'Pacy, highly atmospheric and tantalisingly gripping from the very first page. With rich storytelling and a compelling narrative, The Foundling is subtle, satisfying and intensely moving' Laura Carlin, author of The Wicked Cometh 'A compelling tale of love and hope from the vivid streets of Georgian London' Sonia Velton, author of Blackberry & Wild Rose 'If you loved The Familiars, then you won't be disappointed by The Foundling. A gripping and moving read' Libby Page, bestselling author of The Lido

Welcome to our Village Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 & 2 Audiobook

Welcome to our Village Please Invade Carefully: Series 1 & 2

Author: Eddie Robson Narrator: Hannah Murray, Hattie Morahan, Jan Francis, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Peter Davidson Release Date: December 2019

The Geonin have invaded. They have encircled the sleepy village of Cresdon Green with an impenetrable heat wave. Nothing comes in and nothing gets out. There are, however, no killings, lasers, or human torture - well, torture comes in myriad forms. The Geonin are, in fact, quite agreeable and led by their commander Uljabaan, are doing their very best to assimilate human culture. Their rather reasonable plan for world takeover is to start small (they've noticed that the all-at-once approach usually fails), learn about humankind, and use their knowledge to efficiently spread their dominion, bit by bit. Katrina Lyons, who was only visiting home to borrow some money from her parents, is appalled. Unfortunately almost everyone in the village, the two senior Lyons included, is too cowardly, apathetic, polite or stupid to stand up to this alien menace, so Katrina has no choice but to start the resistance movement herself. In the cricket pavilion. Join Katrina Lyons and co., and Uljabaan as they do battle across innumerable arenas of war; education programs to charity shops, the realms of loyalty cards to the ethereal world of social media. Who will fold first? And will the invasion become catastrophic in scale? Find out in Series 1 and 2 of Welcome to our Village, Please Invade Carefully. This delightful radio drama stars Julian Rhind-Tutt as Uljabaan, Hattie Morahan as Katrina Lyons, Jan Francis as Margaret Lyons, Peter Davison as Richard Lyons, Hannah Murray as Lucy Alexander, and John-Luke Roberts as Computer. Series 1 was broadcast in 2013 and Series 2 in 2014 Written by Eddie Robson Producer Ed Morrish A BBC Studios Production

The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family Behind the Jewelry Empire Audiobook

The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family Behind the Jewelry Empire

Author: Francesca Cartier Brickell Narrator: Hattie Morahan Release Date: November 2019

"An enchanting jewel of a book."-Douglas Smith, author of Former People: The Final Days of the Russian Aristocracy The captivating story of the family behind the Cartier empire and the three brothers who turned their grandfather's humble Parisian jewelry store into a global luxury icon-as told by a great-granddaughter with exclusive access to long-lost family archives The Cartiers is the revealing tale of a jewelry dynasty-four generations, from revolutionary France to the 1970s. At its heart are the three Cartier brothers whose motto was "Never copy, only create" and who made their family firm internationally famous in the early days of the twentieth century, thanks to their unique and complementary talents: Louis, the visionary designer who created the first men's wristwatch to help an aviator friend tell the time without taking his hands off the controls of his flying machine; Pierre, the master dealmaker who bought the New York headquarters on Fifth Avenue for a double-stranded natural pearl necklace; and Jacques, the globe-trotting gemstone expert whose travels to India gave Cartier access to the world's best rubies, emeralds, and sapphires, inspiring the celebrated Tutti Frutti jewelry. Francesca Cartier Brickell, whose great-grandfather was the youngest of the brothers, has traveled the world researching her family's history, tracking down those connected with her ancestors and discovering long-lost pieces of the puzzle along the way. Now she reveals never-before-told dramas, romances, intrigues, betrayals, and more. The Cartiers also offers a behind-the-scenes look at the firm's most iconic jewelry-the notoriously cursed Hope Diamond, the Romanov emeralds, the classic panther pieces-and the long line of stars from the worlds of fashion, film, and royalty who wore them, from Indian maharajas and Russian grand duchesses to Wallis Simpson, Coco Chanel, and Elizabeth Taylor. Published in the two-hundredth anniversary year of the birth of the dynasty's founder, Louis-François Cartier, this book is a magnificent, definitive, epic social history shown through the deeply personal lens of one legendary family.
