The audio version of this touching memoir illustrates the point that hearing a story is a more personal and immediate experience than simply reading one. Narrator Mike Vendetti achieves this intimacy with his nuanced delivery of Trafford's extraordinary story of star-crossed lovers. Piecing together letters and photos found among his late mother's effects, he discovered that her lover was one of the three men who escaped from a German prison camp, a story that was immortalized in the movie THE GREAT ESCAPE. Vendetti's blending of brisk narration with softer introspective passages gives all the personalities distinctive voices while also delivering the emotional depth of this son's moving tribute to his beloved mother.
