Both the author and the CD reader are gifted. This work is engaging and illuminating!

The audiobook must have been rousing as I found the print copy to be unusually trite. Could have been an interesting premise but the main character was so marginally developed it was hard to care much whatever happened. Too bad the author didn't use time/energy to further develop the young jewess taken in by the Muslim family.

I consider myself an audio book addict, so I have heard many narrations of books. I was amazed with the narrator...even my boyfriend commented on it. All of these comments about the book are spot on! Great story. I also loved her book The year of Wonders, although this was very different. If you haven't read it, you should check it out.

I agree, the narrator was brilliant. She really brought the book to life with her intonations and accents. I'm positive I enjoyed this book more as an audio book.

I am recommending this book to all my family and friends, my optometrist, and anybody else I can buttonhole. Read it if you like, but you might like to give the audiobook version a try - the narrator is exceptionally good.
