A TRAIL OF CRUMBS: A NOVEL OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION Pearl Spence, Book 2

by | Read by Tavia Gilbert

Historical Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Using a young-sounding voice, Tavia Gilbert narrates this hopeful story of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Ten-year-old Pearl Spence moves from Oklahoma to Michigan to settle with her father's cousins. Gilbert imbues Pearl with a subtle twang that contrasts with her father's deep emotional tones. Gilbert assigns Pearl's 12-year-old friend, Ray, a gruff voice, while her unhappy mother sounds harsh and and worn out. Life is easier in Michigan after the persistent dust and struggle in Oklahoma, but that doesn't mean there aren't troubles and sorrow. Gilbert delivers this story of resilience and family in tones that tug at the listener's heartstrings. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
