Ferber won the Pulitzer Prize for her 1924 novel, and the incomparable Cassandra Campbell expertly wields the microphone in her performance of this quiet classic. Campbell's gentle delivery exudes empathy and confidence as she animates the life of Selina Peake DeJong, a woman with multifaceted experiences and an independent streak. Campbell's performance gives this early-twentieth-century novel a contemporary sensibility that is largely enjoyable to hear. As the story progresses, Campbell navigates the complex and timeless themes related to life and its shifting values with grace and skill, following each character's struggles steadily. While there are narrative moments that move exceedingly slowly, Campbell's vocal consistency keeps the listener present. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
