At first, one might wonder at the relevance of this 150-year-old political melodrama to modern readers and listeners, but it takes little of Liza Ross's heartfelt reading before the listener is captivated by this story of faith, race and slavery in the antebellum South. Ross adapts her voice to capture the accents of a large cast of characters of every race, gender and age. The story is punctuated with classical music, and the high-quality digital recording is packaged with a booklet of liner notes and background information.
