Cassandra Morris’s youthful voice is perfect for spunky Gloriana. Glory is looking forward to summer days of swimming in the community pool and celebrating her twelfth birthday. But the year is 1964, and the place is Hanging Moss, Mississippi. With the arrival of Northerners who plan to run a clinic, friendships, politics, and values are about to change. In a slight Southern accent, Morris makes Glory sound believably indignant when her sister chooses her cosmetics over a game of “junk” poker. Morris also captures Glory’s mixed emotions as she looks back on her decision to share secrets. Supporting characters, especially thoughtful housekeeper Emma and spiteful Mrs. Simpson, are memorable, with Morris’s portrayals adding to the story’s verisimilitude. An afterword by the author completes the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
