DAUGHTER OF THE SEA

by | Read by Siân Phillips

Children • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

It is bleak for those who live by the sea. Fables are a vital part of this life since nature can be cruel and unfathomable. When a childless fisherman rescues and carries a baby to his wife, their lives seem complete. However, this act unsettles the balance of nature, and years later sea creatures ascend to claim their own. Since it is best communicated by oral tradition, a celebrated actress like Siân Phillips does this fable real justice. A widely diverse cast is presented as if listeners are hearing a village elder relate an ancient legend. A fascinating listen for all ages, especially the young.
