A FIFTY-YEAR SILENCE Love, War, and a Ruined House in France

by | Read by Miranda Richmond Mouillot

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Mouillot delivers memories of her family, particularly the strained silence between her long-divorced grandparents. The author reads her book with bright, sharp tones that share her excitement at spending time in her grandparents' ancient stone house in France, which they purchased after surviving the Holocaust but never lived in. Mouillot's voice grows sharper and more dramatic as she digs into the memories that haunt her family. In dramatic contrast, she gives her physician grandmother, Anna, a loud voice and Eastern European accent and her grandfather, Armand, once an interpreter during the Nuremberg trials, a high-brow British tone. As the story moves slowly from past to present, and back again, Mouillot's narration lulls listeners through this tale of remembering.
