MASTER SLAVE HUSBAND WIFE An Epic Journey from Slavery to Freedom

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Janina Edwards, Leon Nixon

History • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Talented narrators Janina Edwards and Leon Nixon expertly deliver this riveting, well-researched historical account. Ellen and William Craft were an enslaved couple in antebellum Macon, Georgia. In 1848, they fled more than 1,000 miles to the North with Ellen disguised as a disabled white man and William posing as her enslaved servant. The moving true story feels like a novel, and the dual narration engages listeners even more. The performances of both Edwards and Nixon are clear and authoritative, especially as they skillfully vary their pacing to build suspense. Both narrators deliver dignified tones that capture the Crafts' courage, resilience, and enduring love. This important and compelling audiobook is full of historical details and insight. V.T.M.
