Fictional Answer to a Historical Question
A Review of audiobook Roanoke Vanishing by Auburn Seal Narrated by Caprisha Page Auburn Seal has written a very interesting theory of the fate of the roughly 115 colonists who settled on Roanoke Island in 1587 only to disappear without a trace. Avery Lane, a student trying to write her thesis so that she can graduate, has chosen the story of the settlers as her topic. Unknown to her there were/are? people who did/do? not want the truth to be discovered and broadcast to the world. A group of these people made it nearly impossible and extremely dangerous for Avery to research her topic, endangering her friends in the process.Auburn Seal has written this story in alternating time between 1587 and the present in a chapter in the present and a chapter in history very effectively. You must listen to Caprisha Page's audiobook presentation of Auburn Seal's Roanoke Vanishing. It is an experience you want soon forget. It also, might make you think about so called facts on which our history is based.Who was Virginia Dare? Google it. What happened to Virginia Dare? Listen to Roanoke Vanishing.
Yes. It kept me wondering what could possibly hinder this girl's research next.
Caprisha, in her own special way of presenting a story, has managed to keep me interested in the story and amazed at her character representations. Caprisha is a unique storyteller. I look forward to hearing more of her narrations. Perhaps in this Vanishing Series of Auburn Seal's.
Yes, if you have nine hours to spare and a nice comfortable chair.
This is an audiobook you absolutely must add to your library.

I really liked the way that the historical facts were woven into a great fantasy.
I don't read a lot of historical fiction, but the bigger mystery felt a bit like A Great and Terrible Beauty.
She does an excellent job overall. She reads too slow, however, once I sped up the narration it was fine. She does the voices of the ladies particularly well.
Yes, of course. Sadly I have children and a job pressing on my time.
