Biography & Memoir • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The ordinariness of author Kathryn Davis's voice, which is light and pleasant despite being slightly nasal, focuses listeners on the extra-ordinariness of her brief memoir. Encompassing her life from her first trip overseas as a student aboard the S.S. AURELIA to the illness and death of her beloved husband, this audiobook is about journeys--the journey of life and death, what we encounter along the way, and what we think about what we encounter. Blending personal anecdotes with works of literature and philosophical musings, the memoir is both individual and universal. Davis, who is a literature professor and an award-winning author, delivers her writing carefully, with a poet's word-by-word unhurried pace (although she is not a poet). She is an explorer of the heart worth attentive listening. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
