"Finding one's family" takes on new meaning as 10-year-old Copper journeys to the underground sanctums of the Rockers and the trees of the Wood People. Whether stone or wood, frozen or knotted, the outsides and insides of people and places have profound influence on Copper's new life. As details of her past are revealed to her, Copper develops a sense of belonging that settles her mind. But this knowledge comes with a price. Eva Haddon zestfully narrates this fast-paced and original adventure. For each of Copper's many moods--hesitant, lonely, defiant, or determined--Haddon narrates with a specific tone and cadence. Enjoy this fresh and satisfying recording. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
