Narrator Haven Burton transports listeners to Depression-era Appalachia, infusing LizBetty "Possum" Porter's story with Southern charm. After losing her Momma and her baby brother, Possum calls a halt on any more change until her Daddy succumbs to pressure and sends her to formal school. Burton's voice softens when Possum ponders all the sadness in her heart and becomes imbued with feistiness at the prospect of "boxed learnin'" replacing her Momma's homeschooling. Burton gives individual treatment to each member of the supporting cast, in particular, the simple grace of Possum's animal-loving friend, June May, and the openhearted honesty of her wise best friend, Tully. A heartwarming story, perfect for a family road trip. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
