Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by January LaVoy, Jeremy Arthur, Graham Halstead, Bahni Turpin, Caitlin Kelly

Historical Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

A dazzling cast of narrators enhances this stunning novel, which takes place in Rome over 2,000 years. Four stories ask what it means to be a good person. In modern times, Tom, an American biologist, portrayed with sorrow by Jeremy Arthur, is trying to understand how his marriage went wrong. During the Renaissance, Bahni Turpin fluidly captures the beautiful Giulia, who is suffering from an unwanted pregnancy. In the Middle Ages, Felix, a monk, recalls his youthful love of a boy in wistful tones voiced by Graham Halstead. Finally, the saintly Prisca, who lives during the first century, is portrayed by Caitlin Kelly with innocent yet passionate inflections. Throughout, Satan, wickedly voiced by January LaVoy, provides commentary, and descriptions of the city of Rome illuminate the passage of time. S.K.G.
