Mischa is barely 6 when WWII ends. His German father is dead. The boy and his mother are treated miserably as enemies of their native France, but not until her death many years later does the cloth of his life unravel. It’s not just the intricacies of the story that are intriguing, but the wonder with which narrator Glen McCready embraces this work. The concentrated thought he puts into his phrasing imprints each scene in the mind, adding unforgettable colors. He works words around to be descriptions by themselves and then molds them, with just the right amount of emphasis, into the characters the author must have seen in his own mind. McCready puts a fine polish on this production. J.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
