THE BEANTOWN GIRLS

by | Read by Sarah Mollo-Christensen

Historical Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Sarah Mollo-Christensen gives a stellar narration of this gripping story of Red Cross girls who leave Boston as part of WWII relief efforts. Organized Fiona volunteers along with two friends, shy Dottie and brazen Viviana, as a way of helping in the midst of her grief at finding out her fiancé is missing in action. Soon, the wistful tones of missing her loved one turn to the emboldened and urgent tones of struggling to survive. Mollo-Christensen's moving descriptions of devastation and death may bring the listener to tears. She adeptly switches between the many accents involved in this global story: the guttural speech of Germans, the clipped accents of British aristocrats, the drawls of people from New Orleans, and the dropped word endings of Bostonians.
