Earphones Award Winner

Narrator Robert Petkoff's expressive tones and sensitive cadence perfectly match the moods and rhythms of this stunning coming-of-age story, set in hardscrabble small-town Kentucky. In 1985, after the tragic death of his brother, Kevin and his mother return to her childhood home for a summer of healing. Even as Kevin falls in love with the beautiful woods and mountains, he learns that prejudices, family feuds, and tough economic times can lead men to ugly deeds. Petkoff's distinct voices and smooth presentation keep listeners engaged with this remarkable audiobook. Highlights of his performance include a gentle, musing tone that flawlessly conveys the atmosphere of quiet evenings on the front porch and a quick, clipped delivery that captures Kevin's fear of the violence he witnesses during those pivotal months.
