Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicole Poole

Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Nicole Poole delivers the rich atmospheres of this story of a woman’s triumph over her abusive husband. With her Aunt Ruth at her side, Ellen finds a path to freedom. Following in her grandmother’s footsteps, Ellen, with the aid of Ruth, joins the circus. Poole deftly presents the many characters, ranging from kids to circus patriarchs. She finds the key to the feisty and steadfast Ruth as a character to be reckoned with and credibly portrays the transformation of a tentative abused wife to an independent woman who rediscovers her strength and purpose. Poole’s narration and the well-crafted story are a compelling combination. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
