Sophie Amoss's performance is cadenced and calm as she unspools the story of Sarah Brinton, a refugee from an abusive marriage who travels to Minnesota in 1855. There she marries a doctor and befriends members of the Sioux Nation. But relations between the Sioux and white settlers are deteriorating, and Sarah and her children are kidnapped by tribal members. Amoss is steady in her delivery, reflecting the tone and feeling of the story. This novel based on a true story is about events that evoke strong emotions, but the expression of those emotions is quite restrained in the writing and also in the narration. Many listeners are likely to be fine with that; others may find it leaves the work a bit flat. G.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
