Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cynthia Darlow

Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Cynthia Darlow’s performance of this beautiful story of a woman living with schizophrenia dazzles the listener. Darlow’s throaty voice carries the narrative along as she also creates expert vocal characterizations. She applies a simple Southern accent to protagonist Gracie and gives a unique airy tone to the internal voices that urge Gracie to leave home and pursue art. Mama Toot, Gracie’s savior, receives a stunning vocalization that keeps the listener laughing. As the large cast of characters and their intertwined relationships unfold, Darlow is triumphant in bringing to life such diverse individuals as African-American preachers, a stuttering psychiatrist, and a charming boy. Both inspiring and humorous, this story of love, personal growth, and strength isn’t one to miss. J.J.B.
