Narrator Dale Dickey portrays Betty, a young woman raised in the Appalachian region of Ohio. Betty is often called Little Indian by her father, a Cherokee. Her mother is white. With dark skin and a pure, bright spirit, Betty endures cruel racism, a dysfunctional family, and a variety of other heartbreaking tragedies as she goes through life. Dickey captures the innocence and hurt of a young woman who is doing her best to appreciate the magic around her, even while suffering. Dickey perfectly delivers the poetic mood of this audiobook, giving a believable performance with an Appalachian accent. Her narration captures the beauty of the story, while still embracing Betty's struggles. V.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
