One Two Three

A Novel

By Laurie Frankel
Narrated by: Emma Galvin, Jesse Vilinsky & Rebecca Soler
Length: 14 hours 58 minutes

One Two Three

“Laurie Frankel: If she sounds familiar it’s because she’s the author of the bestselling book This Is How It Always Is. Book groups and other lovers of great novels love her. If you’ve read that book, you already know why. If not, here’s your chance to find out. One Two Three tells the story of a small family, in a small town, struck by disaster and struggling to keep going. Poisoned water can have a devastating impact of health–there are lots of children in Bourne whose lives bear witness to that truth. And there’s the Mitchell family–mother and a set of triplets–whose voices alternate throughout the book to tell their story. The author’s ability to speak in the language of these three girls is remarkable. I fell in love with Mab, and Monday, and Mirabel from the start. I think you will, too!”

A Novel

Narrated by: Emma Roberts
Length: 10 hours 47 minutes


“Much like Taddeo’s Three Women, this novel is not for the prudish or for people who like their women to be silent or demure. If you are looking for originality, sexiness, or fearlessness in your next read, this is the book for you. Grab the reins and be prepared for a ride!”
