Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Susan Duerden

Children Ages 10+ • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Under mysterious circumstances, a baby girl, Theo, is delivered to the orphanage of Delphi Keep, located near the White Cliffs of Dover. Eight years later, in 1938, Theo and two other orphans, Ian and Carl, uncover a silver box that holds an ancient prophecy. Susan Duerden is terrific handling the many characters in Laurie's epic adventure. Duerden creates an atmosphere of tension as our young heroes face many dangers when they enter a portal that takes them from England to Morocco. She adapts her voice by using dialects, accents, and different tonal ranges that distinguish the variety of characters. From the evil Magnus the Black to the kindly Earl of Dover, Duerden's performance will leave listeners spellbound. L.A.C.
