Young Adult Young Adult • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Narrator Jessica Lawshe’s smooth, graceful voice is perfectly suited to this understated and beautifully written story about 16-year-old Eliza, who wants to leave her Amish world for a summer and work as a nanny for a family in Chicago. Lawshe’s deliberately placid, steady delivery brings across Eliza’s composed, sweet-natured personality as well as her naïve wonder as she discovers the ways of the world outside her community. Eliza is caught between the two worlds and has to choose which one she’ll call her home. Lawshe portrays the voices of the other characters with similar evenness, capturing their patience and love for Eliza as they help her assimilate into her new life.
