Description

As a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder on an island in Puget Sound, snow blankets the countryside. The whiteness covers the courthouse, but it cannot conceal the memories at work inside: the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, an unrequited love, and the ghosts of racism that still haunt the islanders. First novels rarely attract as much attention as Snow Falling on Cedars. Remaining on bestseller lists for months, it has cast a spell on readers across the country.

Professional reviews

"George Guidall has made so many outstanding recordings that it's almost unnecessary to review his work. This production of Guterson's award-winning novel is no exception. It's the story of a fisherman's mysterious death at sea and the trial of Kabuo Miyamoto, a Japanese American, who has been charged with murder.The setting is a courtroom on the island of San Piedro in the Puget Sound during a furious snowstorm. Guidall's sensitivity to the weight of a phrase and the subtlety with which he presents the characters are masterful. His restraint when reading emotional passages adds to their intimacy and power. Guidall never intrudes but is always present to the listener. In this narration, the listener is carried out of present time into a world of prejudice, violence, love and dreams--all shrouded by the snow falling on cedars. L.R.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
