Peter Noble's quiet yet expressive performance of Canton's consideration of the English oak highlights the audiobook's thoughtful mood and poetic language. Canton, a well-known English nature writer, began this spiritual diary after finding solace from a painful breakup while sitting beside the 800-year-old Honywood Oak in North Essex, England. Over the next two years, he continued to seek out the massive tree while writing these reflections. Noble has a pleasant mid-range voice that is easy on the ears. He honors Canton's meditations by not rushing his beautifully enunciated narration. The result is a soothing contemplation on the human need for nature that would be the perfect listen on a forest walk. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
