About this Recording

BRONTE, C.: Villette (Abridged)

Written by the author of the ever-popular Jane Eyre, Villette is widely admired as Charlotte Brontë’s finest work. The story follows the fortunes of a young teacher at a girls’ school in the French town of Villette and is superbly told by Mandy Weston. It is an adventure story, a romance and a French lesson all in one! The much-praised unabridged recording released last year returns here in a more accessible abridged format.
