One Is the Sun

Patricia Nell Warren, , read by Lorna Raver. . Blackstone, $34.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4332-1212-3

Warren's sprawling epic (clocking in at 24 hours) takes listeners back in time to tell the tale of three Native American young women who create an old wisdom temple in Deer Lodge, Mont. Lorna Raver navigates this long and winding road with tremendous patience and foresight, never rushing her delivery or forcing a reaction from the audience. She reads with a sense of empowerment and importance, giving each complicated character their own identity through a large arrangement of voices and tones. A memorable listening experience and powerful denouement await those willing to give this story the time and respect it deserves. A Wildcat paperback (Reviews, Feb. 22, 1991). (May)
