Description

THE HAND THAT FIRST HELD MINE by Maggie O’Farrell (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Mesmerizing, enormously satisfying…. An uncommonly gripping and moving read.” (Washington Post)

A gorgeous inquiry into the ways we make and unmake our lives, Maggie O’Farrell’s newest novel combines two interconnected stories: a young woman’s coming of age in Bohemian postwar London and a present-day painter and new mother whose boyfriend is suddenly recovering lost memories.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Anne Flosnik. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Maggie O’Farrell has a singular knack for sensing the magnetic fields that push and pull people in love…” (Amazon.com)

Lexie Sinclair makes her way to the city and the thrilling world of Bohemian postwar London, where she learns to be a reporter and to live her life fully. When she finds herself pregnant by a man wholly unsuitable for marriage, she doesn’t hesitate for a minute to have the baby on her own. Later, in present-day London, a young painter named Elina dizzily navigates the first weeks of motherhood. Her boyfriend, Ted, traumatized by nearly losing her in labor, begins to recover lost memories. As the memories become more disconcerting, we discover that something connects these two stories—these two women—something that becomes all the more heartbreaking and beautiful as they all hurtle toward its revelation.
