Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by January LaVoy

Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

January LaVoy gives a breathtaking narration of an astonishing historical novel. Listeners meet a servant girl in the winter of 1609 as she escapes certain death by fleeing into the unknown dangers of the forest. What follows is a beautifully wrought story of survival, narrated with precision, emotion, and a keen sense of the drama that unfolds. The girl's past is slowly revealed, recalling her work in England, the thrill of her journey across the ocean, and the utter devastation amid the failing Jamestown colony. LaVoy puts care into every word, heightening the girl's joy at discovering any small sustenance, her determination to go on, and the many terrors she leaves behind. A propulsive and unforgettable listen. E.E.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
