Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeff Woodman

Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Ben, no longer a husband or father, lands his first job as an in-home caregiver to 19-year-old Trevor, who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Recognizing that Trev's needs exceed the obvious issues of a broken body, Ben crosses the line from professional to friend, arranging a road trip that will profoundly change them both. The success of this audiobook rests on narrator Jeff Woodman's talent for perfectly conveying the characters' emotions yet allowing listeners room for personal interpretation. Woodman skillfully navigates between the humor and sadness of the story and neatly telegraphs Ben and Trev's complex feelings of resignation mixed with hope for something better. Listeners will be captivated by Woodman's performance of this wonderful novel about finding one's way in an unfair world. C.B.L.
