Poignant period fiction
I feel that Henry Strozier's reading enhances an excellent and readable story.
The character Sam Simoneaux seems like a real person -- kind, gentle, flawed, a man with realistic ambitions and unfortunate luck who perseveres. All the characters in Mr. Gautreaux's story are unique and realistic, some more fleshed out than others. The story flows along with the ups and downs and drama of ordinary life in a difficult time in American history.
I seek out books read by Henry Strozier. His voice soothes my mind, as well as bringing characters to life. He paces a book perfectly so every word has the significance intended by the writer.
A story of loss and living.
This is one of my favorite books read in the last several years. He is a wonderful Southern writer. I have shared with friends who also enjoyed it.
