Romantic Fiction • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrators Preston Butler III and Mela Lee beautifully portray a modern-day love story with deep connections to the Harlem Renaissance. Lee's upbeat tone and expressive voice embody Ricki Wilde, a bright, impulsive young woman who is opening a flower shop in Harlem with the help of her feisty 96-year-old landlady, Ms. Della. Lee has an uncanny way of adding and removing years from her voice as Ricki and Ms. Della become more like family. Ricki soon finds herself preternaturally drawn to Ezra Walker, a mysterious musician whose secrets lie 100 years in the past. Butler's smooth voice transports listeners as the story moves through time. Butler's performance exudes the quick pace and rhythm of 1920s slang. Listeners will be captivated by this time-defying romance, which could end in peril. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
