Motherless

Barbara narrated this beautiful book by Gabriel Horn – White Deer of Autumn.

Gabriel’s comments about Barbara’s narration:

Barbara Best’s narration of my award-winning novel, Motherless, filled me with a sense of deep gratitude. Imagine what it feels like to create your characters and your story over the course of years, to rewrite and rewrite until you find the correct words, and put them in their correct places, and then to hear a narrator read those words so that even you, the author, feels them the way you had intended your reader to feel them… to feel the subtle quiver in her voice on certain pages and passages the way my fingers quivered on the keyboard as I wrote them, that is  special. From the opening paragraph, Barbara’s voice pulled me in, and like I had hoped my words would do for the reader while I was writing Motherless, she never let me go until the last.”
