Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tara Sands, Shawn K. Stout

Children Ages 8+ • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Tara Sands offers a memorable performance with this story of three sisters, one restaurant, and a possible German spy. During the summer of 1939, things are changing. The Baum family has decided to open a restaurant, which means that youngest sister Frankie is always in the kitchen. When rumors that her father might possibly be a German spy start to circulate, Frankie knows she has to investigate and uncover the truth. Sands deftly portrays spunky Frankie, thoughtful older sister Elizabeth, and energetic middle sister Joan. She ensures that the sisters' relationship--full of love and occasional frustrations--rings true. She also handles the supporting cast with ease, creating lively and engaging characters, and keeps the tension high as questions arise and tragedy abounds. S.B.T.
