Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sarah-Jane Drummey

Children Ages 10+ • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Sarah Jane Drummey vividly brings to life the beautiful yet devastated landscape of Ireland during the Great Famine of 1845-49. The soft tones and inflections of her native Irish accent conjure a rich air of authenticity that make the events of the story all too real. Young Lorraine loves her family and friends deeply and will do anything she can to protect them. Drummey makes clear her pain and confusion at seeing the suffering caused by extreme hunger and other deprivations. Drummey also offers a nuanced portrayal of those around Lorraine, from her stern but loving parents to the spoiled daughter of their English landlord. The result is a work that will stay with the listener long after it is over. N.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
