Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Forbes

Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

The listener is seized by two things in this novel: the action and the narrator's simple Appalachian accent. This audiobook is one of those rare combinations of text and narration that make the listener feel an intrinsic part of the plot. Julie Harmon is a young woman accustomed to hard work and hardship. She believes her marriage to Hank Richards and move to Gap Creek will offer new beginnings, away from the death and poverty she has seen. Instead, the young couple learns about cruelty, as well as the beauty of nature, humanity, and love. Kate Forbes captures the atmosphere with clarity and honesty. L.B.F.
