In this recording of the sequel to MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, narrator John McDonough immediately establishes a warm and protective relationship with listeners. His airy and gravelly tones become the voice of experience that represents the novel's deep wisdom--those family-centered values that cushion the character-building episodes in life. McDonough doesn't use a large repertoire of vocal characterizations, but he imbues every syllable with feeling, so that listeners comprehend that he cherishes the story. Capturing the essence of young Paul and Maureen Beebe, McDonough's fluid narration carries listeners into the children's minds and hearts as they deal with the loss of their pony, Misty, and the unexpected gift that helps to heal their sorrow.
