Rosenblat gives a nostalgic mood to this tale of turn-of-the-century urban America. A school assignment requires soft-spoken Rosey Sachs to write about her home life. Rosenblat reads Rosey's reflections with tenderness, aptly portraying the love and closeness Rosey feels toward each family member. The narrator's accuracy with the immigrants' accents contributes to the authenticity of the family environment. This production illustrates the power of audio to help the listener more fully experience the ethnic worlds created by Blos. Historical fiction on audio doesn't get any better than this.
