Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sneha Mathan

Fiction • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Roy’s somber and affectionately humorous tale, set in a remote Himalayan community, swells from tragedy to love to fierce protectiveness. Maya attempts to escape her recent widowhood by teaching in a secluded mountain village, only to become embroiled in divisive local elections and violent threats. Sneha Mathan's Indian accent is as rich as melted chocolate as she delivers Maya's internal musings; then her vocal range startles as she portrays the strident and high-timbre speech of girls and older women. Seeking peace in the lush landscape and simple livelihoods, Maya is foiled by both internal and external disruptions. Roy's tender story creates a sensory experience for listeners, and Mathan’s narration embraces its exquisite surroundings and inventive characters. A.W.
