• Tintern grounds and a bit of the story
• The audiobook of Wolf Hall is second only to Bleak House (the Audible version read by a female/male duo), IMHO.

Austen's Henry VIII quote: *"The Crimes & Cruelties of [Henry VIII], were too numerous to be mentioned, (as this history I trust has fully shewn;) & nothing can be said in his vindication, but that his abolishing Religious Houses & leaving them to the ruinous depredations of time has been of infinite use to the landscape of England in general, which probably was a principal motive for his doing it, since otherwise why should a Man who was of no Religion himself be at so much trouble to abolish one which had for ages been established in the Kingdom."
Walden Witch House, (I remembered some of the story correctly.)
