Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eilidh Beaton

Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Listeners are quickly immersed in the doings of a new start-up, the Rock, a hotel on the small island of Mure, which lies between Scotland and Norway. Narrator Eilidh Beaton masterfully handles a variety of accents that dance in listeners' ears. They range from the Scottish of the townspeople to the French of the hotel's temperamental chef and the Norwegian of Konstantin, a young man who has been banished from his home to work in the kitchen. Beaton's brisk narration sweeps listeners away, using slight pauses for humor. Casual conversations lift off the page with Beaton's lively character voices. Listeners will thoroughly enjoy the chaos that ensues as Rock prepares to open on Christmas day. S.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
