This novel examines the pain and triumph of heroine Sugar Lacey as she comes to grips with her life as part of a peculiar African-American family in the mid-nineteenth century South. This superlative audiobook is based on a novel that received the Zora Neale Hurston Society Award and the 2002 Golden Pen Award, but what makes this book such a listening pleasure is Myra Lucretia Taylor. Her voice conjures up complex characters full of longing, anger, curiosity, and unrelenting pain. Taylor leaves us with a listening memory that is nothing short of ethereal. P.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
