Combine an involving family saga with a skilled narrator and you have a winner. Anna Fields reads this story about the people of a Pennsylvania mining town with clarity, warmth, and sympathy. As the five Novak children come of age during WWII, they experience all the possibilities of a new era, as well as the opportunities and limitations of their background and class. Fields gives believable voice to everyone from Polish grandmothers to bored East Coast debutantes and helps us care about the infuriating characters as well as the sympathetic ones. You'll stay glued to your earphones. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
