Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Barrie Kreinik

Historical Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Barrie Kreinik masterfully meets the challenge of voicing men, women and children from the British Isles, Europe, Australia, and America to bring to life the emotional rollercoaster of enduring WWII. Kreinik's nuanced performance shines as Madeline Grant evolves from a timid student at the Sorbonne, to a wife and mother, and finally to a courageous British spy. Kreinik's talents are evident in her portrayals of the four friends Madeline bonds with during her training--each with her own background, history, and distinct accent. Further, Kreinik convincingly depicts Madeline's 8-year-old son, who is grappling with his own traumatic war experiences. Kreinik expertly delivers Bowen's well-written novel, creating an engrossing and enlightening audio experience that brings the wartime era to life. E.Q.
