Saturnalia is the one day of the year when masters and servants switch places. On the day of the ritual Narragansett Indian William and his adoptive family, the Curries, find themselves in the middle of much bigger events. Charlie Thurston narrates in a dignified tone that fits the historical period of the story. He gives the tithingman, a strict Puritan, a commanding voice, but softens his voice for many of the other characters, including William. Further, he expertly conveys the mix of emotions William feels as he is pulled between connecting with his past and enjoying his life in the "white man's world." Weaving together the interrelated vignettes in a way that differentiates the characters and situations, Thurston dramatizes how all the events come together on the Saturnalia.
