Listeners will be transfixed by the rich performance of Bernadette Dunne as she transports us to biblical times through the story of Sarah and Abraham. At the novel's outset, we meet Sarah as an elderly woman preparing to die. The story quickly shifts to the earlier time when Sarah reaches womanhood and makes the bold decisions that will alter the course of her life. Dunne embraces the role of Sarah at every moment, revealing her fear and naïveté as a teen, her first feelings of passion toward the young Abraham, and her maturing understanding of the world and her faith in God. As author Marek Halter completes the projected trilogy, this reviewer hopes that Bernadette Dunne will be chosen to resume her role as narrator.
