This audiobook is positively ethereal. Through a collection of 12 short stories, Christine Lincoln creates an African-American community in the rural South. These are stories of loss and disappointment, struggle and survival, loss of innocence and the acquisition of knowledge. Lizan Mitchell is a gem of a narrator. Whether being a superstitious mother, a wizened elder, or a child on the brink of adulthood, Mitchell perfectly expresses the spirit and tenor of every individual we meet. She is, in a word, spellbinding. The listener will be transported to a place that is both magical and haunting. P.R.
