Written by Carson McCullers, narrated by Susan Sarandon
It is hot in the South in August 1944 – so hot you can smell the sweat.
Frankie Addams is bored and ostracized by her former friends. Her only companions are Bereneice, the maid who serves Frankie and her father, and Frankie’s six-year-old cousin John Henry. Frankie’s brother, her hero, is getting married, and Frankie has decided she will be taking part.
I recommend this audio book without reservation. Ideally you would listen (or read, if that is your choice) on a summer day under a shade tree, but it’s March. Use your imagination.
Since this was published by Audible, I don’t know if you can get it at independent sellers – but you could try your library.
