The deep, euphonious voice of Sean Crisden narrates this poignantly profound novella set in 1947. It features a Black man, a teacher from South Carolina, who leaves behind the ghosts of his past and journeys north to a new life. Minister Peters (his Christian name, not a title) travels in a "colored" compartment of a passenger train, where he meets three fellow travelers, each convincingly portrayed, who are both intriguing and idiosyncratic. Listeners hear Minister's articulate inner dialogue as he reminisces, coolly chronicling his past tragedies and his traumatizing adventures during the long scheduled stops when passengers depart from their rail cars. In this lyrical, polished audio performance, Sean Crisden brings to life the striking characters in this culturally relevant story by the talented Stacy Flood.
