Michael Dorris won numerous awards for this unusual and enchanting book. It's 1492, and Morning Girl and her younger brother, Star Boy, live in the Bahamas when Christopher Columbus discovers the New World. Chapters alternate between the children and are ably read by Eliza and Riley Duggan. Listeners learn how different--and the same--children are then and now. Star Boy disappears when he fears that he ruined the family's canoe; Morning Girl wonders what she looks like until her father shows her that she can see her reflection by looking into the "mirrors" of his eyes. The entire family mourns the sister who was never born. Both the Duggans are exceptional narrators, distinguishing adult from children's voices while conveying the many emotions in such a unique tale. All ages will enjoy and learn from this interesting period in history. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
