Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Imogen Church

Historical Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

A sensational narration by Imogen Church keeps this historical fiction engaging and exciting. Set in Amsterdam during Holland's Golden Age, this riveting story offers fascinating descriptions of social norms, extraordinary people, and ordinary routines. Catrin, a widow, leaves her village and moves to Amsterdam to work as a housekeeper, leaving behind questions surrounding her husband's death. When someone from her village appears in Amsterdam, we can hear Catrin's near-hysteria in Church's voice. Catrin flees to Delft and begins her new life as a pottery painter, and Church expertly delivers the well-researched details of making Dutch porcelain. With impeccable characterizations and sublime Dutch accents, Church details a huge explosion in the Delft armory and the unforgiving ravages of the plague. She makes this audiobook completely believable. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
