It's time for Maddy, the youngest of five daughters, to spend a summer with her grandmother in a remote bayou. Narrator Bahni Turpin brings alive this wondrous story. Her portrayal of Maddy is fully credible, especially her curiosity about her heritage. Turpin delivers Maddy's grandmère's cryptic sayings in a perfect blend of Louisiana French and English. The colourful array of accents she gives to other bayou folk adds cultural depth as well. As Turpin guides listeners, Maddy journeys toward self-discovery and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with mermaids, magic, dragonflies, and an oil rig disaster. The excitement of Maddy and her fellow adventurer, Bear, is infectious. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
