Fiction • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Bahni Turpin dramatizes the emotions of two sisters, one born a slave, the other born free. Through Turpin's spellbinding skill in vocal modulation and accents, these first-person accounts come alive--especially the harrowing experiences of the slave sister, who still manages to find love and forgiveness in the end. Turpin puts listeners front and center--as if they're witnessing every character exchange. The emotional roller coaster of the sister born a slave contrasts pointedly with the socially dictated helplessness of the sister who was born free. Together, author and narrator spin a story that rivals an epic movie. B.T.D. 2017 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
