WHAT IS LEFT THE DAUGHTER by Howard Norman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). "Spellbinding…Norman renders wartime Nova Scotia so vividly, the salty damp seems to seep into your bones." (People) Against the backdrop of World War II, Wyatt’s account of the astonishing events leading up to his fathering of a beloved daughter spills out in a confession that speaks of the mysteries of human character in wartime and is directed, with despair and hope, to an audience of one. This is Howard Norman at his celebrated best. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Bronson Pinchot. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

RATING: Suitable for adults interested in incredibly moving personal historical fiction. ___________________ Seventeen-year-old Wyatt Hillyer, suddenly orphaned, goes to live with his uncle and aunt. Setting in motion the novel’s chain of life-altering passions, and the wartime perfidy at its core, is the arrival of a German student. Actual historical events—including the sinking of the Nova Scotia-Newfoundland ferry Caribou, on which Wyatt’s aunt may be traveling—lend intense narrative power to this uncannily layered story. Wyatt’s account of the events leading up to his fathering of a beloved daughter spills out twenty-one years later in a confession that speaks deeply of the mysteries of human character in wartime and is directed, with despair and hope, to an audience of one.
