Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sheila Atim

Fiction • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Sheila Atim sets a sensitive yet emphatic tone for this harrowing story of violence, loss, and survival. She becomes Maryam, a Nigerian girl who is abducted by the infamous militant Boko Haram. Atim brings listeners to tears as we hear the many violations Maryam must endure--and then makes us hang on breathlessly to see whether her incredible bid for freedom will succeed. Listeners will be enveloped in this emotional listening experience as Atim makes us feel the ultimate betrayal of Maryam's failed reunion with her family, who don't know what to do with a rape survivor who has given birth to child of her abductor. This is a powerful volume that may best be listened to in intervals. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
