Happy holidays, everyone! Here are some seasonally-inspired audio recordings for your listening pleasure:
Jane Austen was born 240 years ago, on December 16, 1775. Elizabeth is a big Austen fan, and has recorded many of her novels, as well as a number of adaptations. Here is a complete list of Austen audiobooks that Elizabeth has narrated:
- From the Pemberley Variations series: Alone With Mr. Darcy, The Darcys of Derbyshire, Mr. Darcy’s Noble Connections, Mr. Darcy’s Obsession, A Pemberley Medley, and To Conquer Mr. Darcy by Abigail Reynolds (ACX, 2012-2015).
- Remember the Past and Twelfth Night at Longbourn by Maria Grace (ACX, 2014-2015).
- The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen by Shannon Winslow (ACX, 2014).
- Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey (ACX, 2013).
- Austensibly Ordinary by Alyssa Goodnight (ACX, 2013).
Elizabeth is very excited to announce the release of her latest audiobook: Remember the Past by Maria Grace, now available at Audible! This wonderful re-imagining of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is Elizabeth’s second collaboration with Maria, following her narration of Twelfth Night at Longbourn. You can read a sample chapter of the book at the author’s site, and listen to a sample of the audiobook at Audible.
Elizabeth Bennet’s father, Admiral Thomas Bennet, assures his daughters his retirement from His Majesty’s Navy will be the start of a new life for them all. Little does he know his family’s battles have only just begun. Well connected and in possession of a good fortune, their entry into society should have been a triumph. However their long-awaited first season in London proves a disaster, and the resulting scandal sends the Bennets fleeing to the wilds of Derbyshire.
Widower Fitzwilliam Darcy, the master of Pemberley, wants for nothing, most especially not a wife. From the moment the Bennets arrive in Derbyshire, Darcy’s neatly ordered life turns upside down. His sons beg to keep company with his new playmates, the young Bennet twins. His mother-in-law sets her cap for Admiral Bennet. Worst of all Darcy cannot get his mind off a certain bewitching Miss Elizabeth Bennet, but she has sworn never to let another gentleman near her heart. Darcy’s best efforts to befriend and assist the Bennet family go horribly awry, alienating first Miss Elizabeth and then her father and finally endangering what both men hold most dear. Can the two men Elizabeth loves most set aside their pride to prevent catastrophe for their families and win the love they seek?
For those who celebrate them, the Christmas holidays are upon us! Elizabeth has a number of holiday-themed recordings for you to enjoy, most of them free. She has just finished recording The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby by Victoria James, which should be available at Audible soon, and has already released Maria Grace’s Twelfth Night at Longbourn, which follows Kitty Bennet (from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice) on a Christmas trip to Pemberley. You might also enjoy listening to the following free recordings, which she shared last year:
