Three narrators bring a delightful variety of styles to Sarah Orne Jewett's short stories. The Maine writer dives into the inner lives of local people, and each narrator uniquely brings out the emotions of her characters. Susan Hanfield immediately creates an inviting atmosphere with her delivery of "A White Heron" as she captures the tender feelings of an adolescent girl. Gabrielle de Cuir's narration of "The News from Petersham" is especially poignant as she renders the sadness of an elderly woman who is considering the passage of time. Stefan Rudnicki's sonorous tone perfectly complements "The Gray Man" as he recounts the details of the mysterious titular figure. Each narrator presents three of the short stories, making this collection a memorable listening experience. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
