Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Beresford Bennett's narration of this dramatic story set in Jamaica during the 1980s moves at a steady pace. The protagonist, Ferron, is dealing with the death of his father. The rhythm of Bennett's tone and pace changes when he portrays Ferron and speaks in a Jamaican dialect. His solemn yet energetic intonation reflects the political upheaval on this small island. When he is portraying the story's female characters, his voice has a higher pitch. From time to time, one hears a tone of urgency in his voice--as if there is a need to uncover a mystery. And, indeed, there is: Ferron is trying to find out the truth about how his father died. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
