THE BOY ON THE PORCH

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Heather Henderson

Children Ages 10+ • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

One morning John and Marta find a young boy asleep on their porch. Narrator Heather Henderson’s soothing voice carries the listener through the unraveling mystery and beauty in this story about love, family, and cherishing moments and people. Henderson’s warm tones and measured pacing portray the relationship that develops between Jacob and the couple. While their keen bond with one another is conveyed with sincerity, the portrayals of the townsfolk are more lighthearted and farcical at times. Henderson’s stirring performance also reflects the poetic qualities the narrative takes near the end of the story as the ups and downs of life are revealed. M.F.
