Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Fiction • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Cassandra Campbell's lyrical, flowing narration beautifully supports this story about a woman's journey of self-discovery. Susan Conley is the author of the memoir THE FOREMOST GOOD FORTUNE and the novel STOP HERE, THIS IS THE PLACE. At once urgent and contemplative, this new work focuses on Elsey, a painter and married mother living in China who has taken to drinking instead of creating art. Urged by her husband to find help, she attends a yoga retreat and discovers many truths, not the least of which about herself. Campbell's lovely performance colors the characters with accent and personality, while also maintaining an audible neutrality. In doing so, she provides a narration that reflects Elsey's attitude and offers listeners a respite from the increasing tension of this timely and timeless story. A.C.S.
