ORPHAN'S SONG The Songkeeper Chronicles, Book 1

by | Read by Ann Richardson

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Ann Richardson's captivating narration enhances this suspenseful fantasy, the first book of The Songkeeper Chronicles. The reluctant heroine, 12-year-old Birdie, is the naïve heir to a powerful gift--she is the Songkeeper. As her story unfolds, everything that happens is bound to a melody that only she can hear. But no one can, or will, tell her what the song means or how to use it. Birdie's frustration is exacerbated by an eclectic assortment of characters trying to protect, apprehend, or manipulate her, with varying degrees of success. Richardson skillfully voices this memorable cast and excels at capturing the author's exceptional use of visual imagery. She creates a dynamic world and relatable personalities that listeners will connect with and want to hear more about in upcoming installments.
