Children Ages 8+ • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

In this wonderful story about building trust, we meet twins Dallas and Florida, 15 years old and still living at an orphanage after many failed placements. When they're finally placed in a warm and loving foster home, they expect the worst. But Tiller and Sairy, with patience for all the twins' misguided efforts, slowly draw out their stories of past abuses and allow them to be kids. Suzanne Toren portrays the caring Sairy and tough but warm Tiller. Toren manages to give each twin a similar, yet separate, voice and distinct personality. Her even presentation draws us into the story, and we care very much how the twins fare in the end. W.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
