ON THE HORIZON Memories of World War II

by | Read by Lois Lowry

Children Ages 10+ • 38 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

Author Lois Lowry narrates a heartrending historical account of lives lost during the events of Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima--all told in verse. Lowry details her childhood memories of growing up in Hawaii and later moving to Japan, including reverent depictions of sailors and citizens who perished during the horrendous events of WWII. Lowry's well-paced and gentle narration guides listeners through tragedy and hope, creating an approachable and immersive depiction that maintains emotional intensity. Her beautiful and sincere performance is intended for young listeners but doesn't require the illustrations in the print edition--although they would make an excellent companion to the audiobook.
