Janis Ian and Jean Smart bring exquisite joy, vulnerability, and honesty to their narration of Isabel Miller’s 1969 historical novel about the love between a poor farmer’s daughter, Sarah, and a folk painter, Patience, in nineteenth-century New England. As the two women realize their feelings for each other, the narrators take on a tender tone and slow their pace, allowing their romantic epiphany to unfold. This makes for a touchingly intimate listening experience. Miller’s classic love story, beautiful in its simplicity, is the first winner of the American Library Association’s Stonewall Award, which recognizes “exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience.” Ian and Smart give Sarah and Patience new life.
