Tony Award-winning actress Audra McDonald beautifully captures the lyrical prose and steamy sexuality in her exquisite reading of Walker's latest novel. Adjusting her accent, attitude and tone, McDonald effortlessly represents each character in the novel. McDonald's delivery presents the listener with a clear understanding of which character is offering his or her perspective on the battles, challenges, old wounds and regrets that tear a family apart and haunt them, even after death. McDonald's voice meshes perfectly with the ups and downs each character faces while coming to terms with love, loss, revenge and forgiveness.
