Tuck Everlasting is a magical, almost mythical, story which is perfectly translated to audio by Barbara Caruso. This fairy tale is imbued with many levels of meaning. Winnie, a ten-year-old child in the late nineteenth century, encounters the Tuck family, who have drunk from the fountain of youth. She's the only person outside the family who knows their secret.This is a beautiful story of a young girl growing up, and, even more, it's a tender love story. Caruso brings her unique ability to mimic old ladies and little girls, as well as men and boys, from different time periods. This wonderful story is probably even better read aloud, especially when the narrator is as fine as Caruso. Listeners of all ages will love this!
