Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pete Cross, Garrard Conley

Historical Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Pete Cross performs this debut novel of a star-crossed love affair between minister Nathaniel Whitfield and physician Arthur Lyman in Puritan New England. As his congregation whispers about his relationship with Arthur and their wives begin to suspect what's going on behind closed doors, Nathaniel prays for an "Awakening" but fears his love for Arthur has brought God's disapproval. Pete Cross's narration captures the intense relationship between the two men; he performs their dialogue with deep emotion. As the two men's families begin to suspect their secret, Cross imbues his performance with tension, communicating both families' anxiety and feelings of helplessness. Cross's narration creates a truly heartfelt listening experience of this beautifully devastating novel. K.D.W.
