Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kimberly Farr

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Kimberly Farr, much lauded for her narration of Strout's Amgash series, brings her characteristic blend of introspection and compassion to this next chapter in Lucy Barton's life. As the pandemic begins, Lucy, at the urging of her ex-husband, William, flees New York City for the relative calm of coastal Maine. Farr describes Lucy's initial confusion over William's worries, which morphs into dread as she comes to see the devastation that COVID wreaks on her family and friends. With perfectly modulated tones, Farr depicts Strout's awkward, frail, and flawed characters while allowing listeners to glimpse the powerful emotions that threaten to overwhelm them. Although many of Lucy's recollections tread familiar ground, listeners will be pleased to revisit her world through Farr's exquisite narration. S.A.H.
