Spending the summer at her grandmother's house on a former sugarcane plantation, 13-year-old Sophie longs for an adventure like the ones she reads about in books. When she's transported to another time, listeners are simply transported, thanks to Robin Miles's narration. Her voice roots the listener in a very particular time and place—the antebellum South—in a story that melds magic and real history. Miles's Louisiana accents are rich and warm and varied, bringing to vivid life a cast of characters who help or hinder Sophie—men and women, children and elderly matriarchs, even otherworldly beings—as she comes of age against a backdrop of slavery, racism, and civil rights struggles.
