Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julia Whelan

Romantic Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Author and Golden Voice Julia Whelan uses aspects of her own career to tell the story of Sewanee, an actress turned romance audiobook narrator who is recovering emotionally from a tragic accident. Having moved on to other genres, Sewanee resurrects her old pseudonym to narrate a beloved romance writer’s last novel and, in doing so, works with the industry’s most popular and secretive male narrator. The two form a deep connection over texts and emails, but when their identities are revealed, everything comes into question. Details of audiobook narration are balanced with palpable emotion voiced in an impressive range. This is best exemplified when a waiter exclaims that he can’t believe Sewanee voiced every character in an audiobook, and Whelan deepens her register, slipping into the male protagonist’s voice to prove it. A.L.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2022 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
