Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kim Mai Guest

Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Ten-year-old Comfort Snowberger’s family has run the Snowberger Funeral Home in Snapfinger, Mississippi, for generations. Narrator Kim Mai Guest is Comfort, communicating all her heartache, humor, honesty, and heroism as she shares the story of one September filled with love and loss. Through tone and tempo, Guest assumes the voice of this young heroine. In the end, along with Comfort, we realize the truth of Uncle Edisto’s motto, “It takes courage to look life in the eye and say yes to the messy glory.” You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll embrace the “messy glory” and want to share this life-affirming gem with young and old alike.
