Master storyteller Stephen King presents the classic #1 New York Times bestseller about a housekeeper with a long-hidden secret from her past...one that tests her own will to survive.
When Vera Donovan, one of the wealthiest and most ill-natured residents of Maine's Little Tall Island, dies suddenly in her home, suspicion is immediately cast on her housekeeper and caretaker, Dolores Claiborne. Dolores herself is no stranger to such mistrust, thanks to the local chatter and mysterious circumstances surrounding her abusive husband's death twenty-nine years earlier. But if this is truly to be the day of Dolores Claiborne's reckoning, she has a few things of her own that she'd like to get off her chest...and begins to confess a spirited, intimate, and harrowing tale of the darkest secrets hidden within her hardscrabble existence, revealing above all one woman's unwavering determination to weather the storm of her life with grace and protect the one she loves, no matter what the cost....
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
65-year-old widow Dolores Claiborne is giving her statement to the local police, and she has a lot to say. Accused of killing the wealthy old woman who’s employed her for decades, Dolores is adamant that she didn’t do it. Which is not to say that she’s never killed anyone. Actress Frances Sternhagen—who’s had roles in the screen versions of both Misery and The Mist—gives a powerhouse performance as Stephen King’s lonely but deceptively strong heroine. Sternhagen has fun with Dolores’ folksy Maine accent and the everyday poetry of King’s dialogue, and gut punches us with moments of poignancy and sadness. This is a brilliant audiobook rendition of one of the horror master’s most haunting, melancholy novels, and an essential listen for his legion of fans.
