Historical Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners join the Givens family as they forge a new life for themselves. Immigrants from Northern Ireland, they have landed in pre-Civil War Cincinnati. The story is told from the viewpoint of Olivia. Narrator Cassandra Campbell's soft Northern Irish accent helps reinforce the experience of the family, who start as outsiders with nothing and over the decades build a prosperous life for themselves. She rises to the challenge of giving voice to a wide range of characters, including evangelists, slaves, and Cincinnati society ladies. Campbell's well-paced narration helps keep the story moving through the various twists and turns in the family's life. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
