TO THE ISLAND OF TIDES A Journey to Lindisfarne

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David Rintoul

History • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator David Rintoul sweeps listeners into historian Alistair Moffat's tapestry of memoir, journalism, and religious history relating to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The tidal island off the Northumbrian coast has a Celtic Christian identity that dates back more than a millennium. With subtle yet distinct modulations of pacing and tone, and--to convey Moffat's sense of being an outsider--only an occasional Scottish accent, Rintoul communicates the author's sensitivity to the place as one of personal discovery. As the author looks at the island from the perspective of his youth and from his current middle-aged perspective, Rintoul conveys his appreciation for its roles in local lives and those of pilgrims. This is a fine choice for walkers, nonreligious contemplatives, and armchair travelers, thanks to a perfect blend of narrator, author, production team, and unique subject. F.M.R.G.
