Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Danielle Cohen

Historical Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Danielle Cohen merges lyrical descriptions of 1954 Cornwall with portrayals of intriguing main characters. Burdened by secrets, a mother and daughter must find a new home. Cohen portrays the mother, Magda, with a Polish intonation and tones of sharpness and sarcasm. Magda's determination to renovate a derelict estate is contrasted with the longings and fears of her obedient but resentful daughter, Mila. In a youthful-sounding voice, Cohen adds the fanciful innocence of 5-year-old Jane and the solid and caring tone of Jack, a stranger who lives nearby. Cohen distinguishes the Cornish townsfolk with precision and unspools enchanting legends and secrets that will captivate listeners as much as this story's characters and setting. S.W.
