Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Anna Bentinck, Karen Cass

Historical Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

In alternating chapters, listeners meet 34-year-old Roberta and her 110-year-old grandmother, Dorothea Pietrykowski--or is it Dorothy Sinclair? Anna Bentinck and Karen Cass are the spellbinding narrators of this delightful novel. They're both equally gifted at capturing the mysterious ambience of the story, as well as every emotion--from Dorothea's unhappy marriage, devastating miscarriages, and all-consuming love affair with a Polish pilot during WWII to Roberta's loneliness in the present and desire to discover the truth about her family history. The dual narration is seamless and thoroughly engaging from start to finish. M.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
