Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ann Marie Lee, Elizabeth Letts [Afterword]

Historical Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Ann Marie Lee's versatile narration of this novel based on the life of L. Frank Baum's wife, Maud, is as entertaining as THE WIZARD OF OZ, the iconic film based on Baum's most famous work. Maud and her suffragist mother, Matilda, are both fiercely independent, unforgettable characters. Whether Lee is portraying Judy Garland, Louie B. Mayer, or other real-life figures, her extraordinary ability to create precise and expressive vocal characterizations reveals her to be an artist at the top of her profession. Especially impressive is Lee's rendering of distinct and authentic-sounding male voices. Letts offers a brief narration of her research in an afterword. This is an audiobook listeners will revisit again and again. M.J. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
