Alison Larkin’s Earphones award-winning recordings of Jane Eyre and The Secret Garden are now brought together in this stunning double bill.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is the epic love story of the plain, unwanted orphan with an indomitable spirit who becomes a great romantic heroine despite all odds.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett is the story of Mary Lennox who, when her parents die of cholera, is sent to live with her uncle in a cold, dark mansion in England. There she discovers a secret garden that has been locked for ten years.
“As an orphan myself, these two great novels affected me deeply as a child. Narrating them as an adult was a privilege and showed me that the courage it takes for an unwanted girl to forge her own path in the world is the same today as it was when these masterpieces were written...” (Alison Larkin)
