Those interested in the story of Rosewood, a small, black Florida town erased from the map in 1923 by angry whites, will be well served by this excellent production. Through extensive interviews with Rosewood survivors and others involved in the fight for restitution, D'Orso compiles a history both tragic and triumphant. Richard M. Davidson's strong, clear reading doesn't shy away from expressing the terror of the survivors' stories or the reactions of those who wanted the stories to stay hidden. Davidson's skill and energy in voicing D'Orso's vivid recreation of events more than 20 years ago mesh to make this outstanding audiobook suspenseful and compelling. M.A.M.
