Summary

At the heart of each of these great classic stories is an adoptee with an indomitable spirit who becomes the heroine (or hero) of her own life. "The bravery it takes for an unwanted orphan to forge their own path in life was as great when these stories were written as it is today," says narrator Alison Larkin, who draws on her own adoption experience to bring these stories to authentic new life. Exclusively for Audible, by special request, the stories are followed by The English American, Alison Larkin's best-selling autobiographical novel about an adopted English woman who finds her birth parents in the United States.

Peter Pan

"The well-known characters in the much-loved story of Peter Pan are enlivened with humor and excitement in this gem." (AudioFile Mag, Earphones award winner)

Great Expectations

It's the same thrilling story of mysterious beginnings, poverty, an old woman jilted at the altar, a beautiful, haughty young woman and a mysterious financial gift that transforms the life of a young person. Only in Larkin’s critically acclaimed adaptation, Pip is a woman.
