Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Historical Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Simon Vance works his magic on this well-written WWII novel inspired by the contributions made to the war effort by homing pigeons. Not to worry--listeners will also find plenty of action scenes, terror behind enemy lines, and a sweet romance. Vance masterfully differentiates characters from Maine, several parts of the UK, France, and Germany. The lead female character, intelligent, gutsy Susan, who trains homing pigeons, also demonstrates the significant role women played in battling the enemy abroad and sexists at home. Vance is one of the gifted male narrators who can successfully portray female characters in a natural way. The pacing of the narration is perfectly tuned to the author's intent, creating a highly engaging listening experience. E.Q.
