Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Billie Fulford-Brown

Historical Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Billie Fulford-Brown's performance is heartbreaking and deft. She captures the gripping story of two women and their choices, and its historical setting. In 1940, as Nazi forces bomb London, the government offers children refuge via passage to several countries. Lily, young and working class, elects to send her son and daughter to Canada. On the ship, her children meet Alice, one of the support volunteers. When a U-boat attacks the ship, forcing Alice and the children into a lifeboat, they soon discover help is not on the way. Gaynor's audiobook, based on true events, is both riveting and inspiring. Fulford-Brown demonstrates mastery of the emotional depth and impact of the characters. S.P.C.
