With Suzanne Toren as narrator, listeners to Taylor's beloved classic are in for a treat. Detailed episodes of the four sisters and their endearing young brother, Charlie, are set within the holidays of the Jewish year. Just a few of the WWI period episodes include discovering the joys of learning and the pleasures of reading, celebrating Sukkot, and collecting prune pits to burn for charcoal in the war effort. Toren delivers every personality and accent with aplomb. Papa's Eastern European authority and devotion to his faith, Mrs. Healy's lilting Irish brogue, young Ella's and Grace's love-filled yearnings, Gertie's mischievous remarks, and Charlie's childlike observations are all rich in personality. Toren's precise and clear diction is a delight. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
