At the end of WWII, Evelyn Roe is living alone, farming her aunt's North Carolina land. After a flood, Evelyn rescues a man she finds buried in the mud. Stina Nielsen uses a Southern accent to recount the story of the mysterious Adam, who becomes Evelyn's husband. Elements of this tale are drawn from the biblical Creation story. Nielsen delivers the story steadily, enticing the listener to savor the descriptions of farming, life, and love. Nielsen uses subtle variations of tone and inflection to differentiate the characters, especially Adam. As Adam evolves, Evelyn must protect his secret--until the day she begins to recount this unusual tale for her children. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
