This audiobook is an example of a perfect match: Connie Briscoe's prose and Robin Miles's performance complement each other effortlessly. Naomi Jefferson is the main character whose life is traced in detail through the novel. Thanks to author and reader, the listener gets to know the Jefferson family so well that the loss of Naomi's older brother makes an enormous impact. Naomi takes up her brother's fight for civil rights with varying results. The persistence Naomi shows, as well as her frustration and anger, puts an honest face on the difficult quest for respect and equality. Miles brings the dialogue to life and yet lets the book tell the story. Some scenes are drawn out or predictable, but the overall result is an enjoyable listen. L.B.F.
