THE SEARCH FOR BELLE PRATER

by | Read by Alison Elliott

Children Ages 10+ • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

This sequel to the Newbery Honor book BELLE PRATER'S BOY continues Woodrow's story. The phone rings on Woodrow's birthday, and he's sure it's his long-lost mother. When the call is traced to Bluesfield, Woodrow and cousin Gypsy take the bus to find Belle. Cassie, a classmate with second sight, and Joseph, the first "colored" person they've ever encountered, join the quest. Alison Elliott's reading is spot-on, true to the 1950s' Virginia setting. She gives each character a unique voice as he or she searches for a safe, loving place in the world. An interview with the author, offering insight into the writing process and the independent life that story characters often take on, is icing on the cake.
