Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Beverly Dunn

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1954

Prepare to be enthralled and deeply moved by Australian actress Beverley Dunn's reading of Betty Jeffrey's diary, kept during her internment in a Japanese prison camp during WWII. Jeffrey was one of 32 Australian Army nurses imprisoned in the Sumatra jungle in 1942. For three years she kept this secret journal of courage and awe-inspiring determination in the midst of terrible deprivation. The journal, which was published in 1954, was the basis of the film PARADISE ROAD. Dunn's matter-of-fact tone and mild Australian accent are perfect for the story. She helps listeners withstand the prisoners' life of horror while sharing in their occasional self-made joys. A 1999 Audie Award finalist. A.C.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
