Elizabeth: Obstinate, Headstrong Girl Audiobook – Reading & Giveaway

Good Afternoon everyone,

I am very happy to bring to you today news about a new Audiobook release. As you know I am completely addicted to audiobooks, which have become my constant companions while I do my chores at home, and one of my favourite books will be released on Audible very shortly, so I’ll have a new voice and new stories to keep me company. I’m talking about Elizabeth: Obstinate, Headstrong Girl, an anthology edited by Christina Boyd which gathered 10 very talented authors in one single publication dedicated to our favourite heroine, Elizabeth Bennet.

The audiobook will be narrated by Elizabeth Grace, a narrator I didn’t know before, but whose talent captivated me. I haven’t heard the narration yet, but Elizabeth Grace read Christina Moreland’s “Atmospheric Disturbance” short story for the blog tour and I loved seeing the video of this narration.

Today she is reading the second 15 minutes of “Atmospheric Disturbance”, and I hope you like listening to her beautiful voice, but before watching this video,  I suggest checking out the first post of the blog tour at  Austenesque Reviews to listen to the first 15 minutes of this story. If you do, you’ll be able  listen to the entire story.

I would like to thank Christina Boyd for bringing all these incredible authors together and for providing readers with another wonderful book, and to Elizabeth Grace for visiting today, it was a true pleasure to have her at From Pemberley to Milton. 

But I won’t take much more of your time, you can listen to Elizabeth’s narration below 🙂

~ A Reading from “Atmospheric Disturbances”  – Part 2 ~

 


Originally from the East Midlands in the UK, Elizabeth Grace now lives in South London (via two years in Amsterdam). She is a full-time actor, voice over artist, and narrator. 

Elizabeth began her professional performing career a little later in life and has been studying at Identity School of Acting in London since 2019. Prior to that, she had a career agency side in Marketing which explains her penchant for client services.

Since 2019, she has been growing her professional portfolio on top of the amateur theatre work she began in her formative years. She has now been a part of many projects from short films and web series to audio dramas and audiobook narration. Visit her website: https://www.elizabethgraceofficial.com/

 


With timeless verve, the heroine of Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet, bares her intimate thoughts while offering biting social commentary through a collection of romantic re-imaginings, sequels, and prequels, set in the Regency to present day by ten popular Austenesque authors. Foreword by NY Times & USA Today bestselling author Tessa Dare. “I think her as delightful a character as ever appeared in print…” wrote Jane Austen in a letter, January 1813―and we think so too!

Stories by Amy D’Orazio, Jenetta James, Christina Morland, Beau North, Joana Starnes, Karen M Cox, Elizabeth Adams, Leigh Dreyer, J. Marie Croft, and Christina Boyd.

    I don’t have audio so this has been so much fun. As children, my mom would read stories to us. Elizabeth Grace has such a soothing voice; I love listening to her read. Congratulations to all the authors for their contribution to this work, to Elizabeth for all her time and effort bring life to the characters, to The Quill Ink for the generous giveaway, and to Rita for hosting. Wow!! That is a lot of people… good luck to all in the drawing… stay safe everyone, wear masks, and stay healthy.

    I have recently become obsessed with audio books myself. They have become my constant companions whilst I garden and do all the house cleaning. I am have really enjoyed Elizabeth Grace’s narration. I will make sure to check out her other reads.

      Schilds—I agree that gardening is a perfect time to listen to audiobooks. Also folding laundry—that is a tedious task and listening to a great story “almost” makes me wish for more laundry!

    Rita, thanks so much for hosting, and Elizabeth, thanks again for your fabulous reading! You really brought the story to life. I especially loved how your voice conveyed the humor and struggle I was attempting to create for these beloved characters.

    I enjoyed this but I don’t have audiobooks myself. I prefer to read at my own pace as I love to reread certain passages as I go.
    Thank you for sharing this excerpt, Elizabeth read this so very well. I may one day find I prefer to have someone read to me at which time I will definitely enjoy the rest of this.

    • Thank you Glynis! I completely understand that, its sometimes difficult to keep up when you aren’t seeing the words written down too and often times words just look so lovely on the page. I like to mix it up myself depending on what I have to do that day. Each to their own but I am glad you enjoyed the reading.

    I love when a reader makes you listen.
    Elizabeth Grace illustrates the authors talent by using her own acting skills to reveal many character dimensions that might be overlooked by a more casual reader.
    Within a minute I felt I was watching a play unfold inside my mind.
    Brilliant

    Sometimes I’m in the mood for ebooks, sometimes for audiobooks! They are particularly great to listen to while driving, taking a walk, exercising, etc.

      You are so welcome, Jen. It was an absolute pleasure and I am glad you enjoyed it. I love the story for just that reason, its so relatable and tender – warm fuzzy feeling all around at the end.

  19. This sounds like a great collaboration! I love the idea of being able to hear the story in an English accent, as that adds another connection to Jane Austen’s voice (and Elizabeth’s) that I do not normally have.

      Thanks for the comment, NovEllaandbella. The anthology has a mix of stories set in both the US and the UK for which the accents are changed accordingly which is so important for setting the scene and bringing the story to life truthfully. I am honoured to be the english voice in your head 🙂

    Great story and marvelous narration. I had read the anthology and has just finished listening to the audiobook. This is one of the stories which are made even better by brilliant narration. Emotions of ODC are played to perfection. Congratulations
