Professional reviews

"When you find yourself counting the tapes, rationing your listening time and praying that you'll never come to the end, you know you're hearing something special. Gilman takes her young heroine from the refined atmosphere of Boston to the terrors of the African desert, and the listener is with her through every word. Alexander will remind you of the few great storytellers from your youth who told tales without imposing their personalities upon your imagination. This is curled-up-on-the-sofa dreaming and escaping--and a wonderful experience. J.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
