Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The North Carolina coast is almost a character in this story set during and after the Revolutionary War, but the war itself is mere background. The prose is beautiful, and Edoardo Ballerini delivers it with a deep, sonorous voice that expresses the rhythm of the sea. His narration brings life to the varied and complex characters, making each unique and identifiable without resorting to a collection of different voices. He makes the transitions from war to post-war--and from Tabitha and her family to Moll and her son--go smoothly with his careful, explicit delivery, offering us a window into harsh lives filled with mercy, beauty, and grace.
