by | Read by Robin Miles

Historical Fiction • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Robin Miles is the masterful narrator of this groundbreaking American novel. Hearing her musical voice, listeners will be inspired to root for the "yellow girl" Vyry, whose resilience is born of indignity. Miles recounts Vyry's life as a slave in an insular plantation community as well as her expanding world in the Civil War and Reconstruction period that follows. She endows the wide cast of characters with distinctive pitches, tones, and dialects. Enslaved and free, poor and rich, old and young, black and white, these characters come to life as Miles effortlessly enacts the details of everyday life and everyday brutality. Haunting, vivid, and beautiful, this jubilant audiobook does justice to the masterwork and its exquisitely told story of the intricacies of race and the struggles for freedom in America.
