Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

From Civil War days until the 1930s, Hennie Comfort savors the joys of Colorado mountain life. As the protagonist prepares to leave her home to reside with her daughter, a young woman moves to the gold-dredging town. As Hennie shares survival secrets and long-hidden stories, she reveals surprising tales of her youth. Maggi-Meg Reed brings to mind a wise and cherished grandmother in her depiction of Hennie, complete with a timeworn raspiness. As the story moves across the years, however, there is little distinction between Hennie’s youthful and mature voices. Innocence and delight in discovery spark Reed’s reading of young Nit. As the women bond, the listener is treated to a beautiful portrayal of female lives in a challenging time and place. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
