The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, by Maryrose Wood, is a delightful read on its own, but with the addition of Katherine Kellgren's narration, this story is taken to a magical land of snooty ladies, plucky governesses, and howling wolf-children. Kellgren uses different voices and accents for all the characters--her talent for dramatic reading kept me in my car, listening to the story, long after I had reached my destination. This is definitely one of my favorite audiobooks of all-time. (Plus, it's the first in a series! I've just started Book 3!!)
