Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Nostalgia and the search for his missing grandfather bring Penkov's unnamed narrator back to Bulgaria in search of answers. Kirby Heyborne narrates his journey with a feeling for its meaning and purpose. The journey takes us into the Strandja Mountains, between Bulgaria and Turkey. Heyborne's tender tone has an undercurrent of sadness, making the listener hope for the best but expect the worst. Heyborne is a good choice for the author's dense writing style as his use of emphasis and pauses help the listener follow the many complex sentences. This is a unique story, especially for those who are unfamiliar with this part of the world. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2016]
