Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Barrie Kreinik, Raphael Corkhill

Fantasy • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Barrie Kreinik and Raphael Corkhill co-narrate an epistolary fantasy novel about the joys (and dangers) of translating newly discovered ancient manuscripts. Audrey Camherst, granddaughter of the intrepid Lady Trent, is eager to make her mark on the world and jumps at the opportunity to translate a cache of newly discovered material. Kreinik narrates Audrey's diary, which comprises the bulk of the story, with great flair, veering between Audrey's occasionally bumptious confidence in her translation skills to her periodic terrible lapses in judgment. Corkhill narrates sundry newspaper reports and letters, but it is his interpretation of Kudshayn's letters to the Draconean Sanctuary that are most remarkable. Encompassing astute observations, moral dilemmas, crises of conscience, and affirmations of personal faith, they are all deeply affecting. K.M.P.
