Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Hillary Huber

Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Maya Lange, director of the Red Thread Adoption Agency, vets potential adoptive parents. She believes that an invisible thread connects the souls of abandoned Chinese babies with loving families. Hillary Huber genuinely portrays the array of characters in this three-part story: the Chinese families forced to cast aside baby girls, the joy and fear of the American adoptive parents, and Maya’s grief over the accidental death of her own child. Huber excels in her narration of the Chinese women’s stories. She embodies the pain of the mothers, particularly one who sews a pattern on her baby’s blanket as a clue to her birth village. Like Hood’s other novel, THE KNITTING CIRCLE, this is a compelling story of human ingenuity. K.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
