In this intelligent adventure of a young black woman from the privileged class of 1930s Atlanta during the 1930s, Eve Rutland takes listeners on the journey of Ann Elizabeth Carter's self-discovery. Donna Washington does a wonderful job of relaying the genuine conflict in Ann Elizabeth when the heroine falls in love, leaves the protection of her home, and discovers for herself what it's truly like to be a black woman in America before the Civil Rights movement. Still, there is a strength in her voice that persists even in the most harrowing scenes, conveying Ann Elizabeth's resilience in a clever and subtle way. With its message that we must learn to overcome hatred, NO CRYSTAL STAIR offers hope for listeners of all races. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
