Robin Miles, Adenrele Ojo, and Brittany Pressley team up to narrate this audiobook about three unforgettable mothers in South Carolina in 1924. Miles voices Annie, a plantation owner's wife and businesswoman in her own right, with a regal, prideful tone and clear enunciation. Ojo voices Retta, a first-generation freed slave, with tenacious righteousness, a perfect complement to her firm but generous nature. Pressley voices Gertrude, an impoverished and battered mother of four, with a hint of vocal fry that precisely reflects her harsh life. Pressley's narration of children's voices is particularly admirable and realistic--she sounds like a completely different person altogether. A wonderful, varied cast brings three seemingly unrelated women together in ways they never expected. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
