Reviews for Fly Away

AudioFile Reviews 2013 July
Continuing the emotional story begun in FIREFLY LANE, Susan Ericksen resumes her narration of the story of Tully Hart and the Ryan family. After her best friend's death from cancer, Tully's whole life falls apart until she finds herself in a coma following a car accident. At that point Tully learns about her past, herself, and how to move on. Ericksen narrates in a soothing voice as several characters share their points of view of the story. She provides a rough, stilted voice for Tully's addict mother and a more youthful one for Mara Ryan, the teenage daughter of Tully's best friend. Slight accents are used for some of the characters, including the doctor who treats Tully in the hospital and Tully's father. The accents differentiate their voices without breaking the magic of Ericksen's narration. The production provides discussion questions read by the author. E.N. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
