FORTY AUTUMNS A Family's Story of Courage and Survival on Both Sides of the Berlin Wall

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Nina Willner's memoir features her mother, who escaped to West Berlin, leaving her family behind the Iron Curtain. At 20, Hanna embraces her newfound freedom but is filled with worry about her family. Cassandra Campbell's narration depicts the period of the Cold War well and conveys a deep longing that mirrors Hanna's pain and loss. News of her family through the years gives Hanna assurances that her family remains close and is thriving in spite of the Communist regime. Campbell's portrayal of Hanna's emotional arc reflects a deep understanding of self-preservation and love of family. E.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
