I did not expect that Hope would make me laugh and cry at words which had originally been my own. I’m grateful to her for taking the project so much to heart, and for breathing genuine feeling into every line she read.
Hope is the rare kind of artist who brings her audience with her on and into every journey. And she does so with spirit, focus and great versatility. She can just as successfully take on the role of your favorite teacher in an e-learning piece as she can paint an entire world of a novel, all with her voice. Her instinct, insight and sensitivity are palpable. Hope is also truly wonderful to work with. She’s collaborative and professional, a quick study and a creative force on any team.
Hope’s performance was stellar. Her smooth tone, pacing and ability to captivate the audience shows in her reviews. She was very easy to work with and completing the project ahead of time. I recommend Hope for audiobooks in any genre because she’s that good!
Hope Newhouse’s ability to bring my stories to life in French has opened new doors for my readers/listeners. Her expertise, professionalism, and amazing performances made the 6+ book series a breeze to complete. I look forward to collaborating with her on future productions and highly recommend her.
and International Bestselling Author
Directing Hope reading Rebel Chef was a real pleasure – she is one of the most prepared and fluent narrators I’ve ever worked with.
for Penguin Random House
Newhouse moves smoothly between English and French, effectively portraying an aging Frenchman, a bohemian actress, and the young and confused Margot. The prose in the novel is mesmerizing, and its delivery perfection.
review of The Margot Affair
Narrator Hope Newhouse offers a gentle performance of this serious audiobook about surviving the loss of a friend.
review of The Stepping Off Place
Award-winning audiobook narrator and actor, with deep roots in Boston, MA and Paris, France, Hope is equally at home voicing an American or une française. She has performed onstage for over 10 years and her voice has been heard on commercials, in video games, cartoons, and institutional films, but she is most proud of her work in audiobooks – a medium that combines her love of literature and her deep actor’s desire to play all the parts! In 2022, Hope was awarded an Earphone’s Award for City of Incurable Women and the gold medal for audiobook fiction in the IPPY Book Awards for the novel in verse Call Me Athena. She was nominated for Independent Audiobook Awards in 2020 and 2021 and has narrated for Penguin Random House, Harper Audio, Macmillan Audio, Dreamscape Audio and many others. She especially loves to narrate YA fiction and fantasy and books with lgbtq+ themes.
