Children Ages 10+ • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

After ten years of impoverishment, Solomon Snow discovers that he was abandoned at his parents' doorstep. The only proof of his heritage lay in a silver spoon, which his adoptive father hocked to buy more alcohol. Snow sets out to find his real parents. The elegant and refined English voice of Jenny Sterlin has a wonderful tone that engages the listener yet doesn't fully embody the story. While she renders the character of young Prudence into an old maid, for example, she executes a vocal characterization that enhances the cuteness of adoring Rosabella. Overall, Sterlin does a good job, but one still wonders if another voice might fit the story better. L.E. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
