Narrator Donna Postel gives the listener the feeling of lounging in a comfortable room while talking about books with a fellow bibliophile. She narrates Ann Hood's memoir of her early life with books in a conversational tone, praising the power of reading to expand a young person's horizons. Postel's steady pace leaves room for listeners to recall their own relationships with characters from their childhoods and to acquire leads on books and characters yet to be met. Coming from a home that did not have books, Hood, nevertheless, was bitten by the literary bug. Public schools and a local library put her on the path from her small community to the wider world, and gave the world a wonderful author who continues to pay that gift forward.
