Children Ages 10+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Eleven-year-old Nickie meets the prophet and her acolytes and learns that good intentions do not always produce good results in a society that lives in fear of an impending war and is looking for guidance and spiritual security. Becky Ann Baker's storytelling skills are showcased in her spirited narration. She makes good use of accents to contrast Nickie and her aunt (the outsiders) and the residents of the small North Carolina town that is home to the prophet. The special effects, which make this production reminiscent of a radio play, are a bit distracting and may blend in with background noise for those listening in less than ideal circumstances.
